Despite the fact that they are not currently in a relegation scrap and the fact that they would survive tthat this season, Everton’s form has not been very great recently.
The Toffees recorded back-to-back wins in the Premier League for the first time since December prior to last weekend, but they could not continue that good run of form at home against champions-elect, Manchester City the last and they fell to yet another defeat.
That was their 8th time they were losing a match in their last 13 games in all competition with only 4 of those games ending in wins. Almost all of their wins and draws from that time have come against teams below them on the league table and they have won only one and lost 6 games against teams above them on the league table.
Liverpool may have been eliminated early from all domestic cup competitions this season, but they still have the chance to win a competition as they are still in contention for the Champions League and their performance against Manchester City on Wednesday would have boosted their morale ahead of this game.
Mohamed Salah’s injury was the only negative in that game against the Cityzens as he seemed to have picked up a groin injury, however, Liverpool do not lack talent in the attack and Jurgen Klopp may even decide to switch things around a little here to keep his star men fresh for the game at the Etihad on Tuesday.
The Reds have 8 wins from their last 12 games, and 3 or more goals have been scored in 9 of those games.
