Merseyside Derby – Everton vs Liverpool


Preview: Match of the Week


Everton play host to Liverpool on Saturday, with both teams looking strong. Liverpool is currently 2nd in the league and Everton 6th, but while Liverpool’s strike partnership of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge is looking quite formidable, Everton is still unbeaten at home in the calendar year 2013. Cue fireworks at Goodison Park.


This is Roberto Martinez’s first game as a manager in a Merseyside Derby, and he is confident of winning. He is also in a unique position, having being offered the Liverpool job after Kenny Daglish quit in 2012, instead joining Everton this season.


Both teams have conceded 10 goals so far this season; however, Liverpool have scored far, far more, with both Suarez and Sturridge having scored 8 goals apiece. However, only Romelu Lukalu has really been a threat for the Toffees, having scored 5 goals so far.
