We doubt that the Toffees will manage to qualify into Euro cups according to the results of this season. But their current situation allows finishing this season quietly. 40 points guarantee calm life in the middle of the standings.
However the forthcoming match is important for the team of Allardyce as it is derby. The match with the Reds can be considered to be the last important match of the championship at Goodison Park.
Last round Everton could not show anything good in the match against Manchester City (1:3) at home field, having missed three times by the 37th minute.
Thanks to the amazing style, Jurgen Klopp and his football players have won over the Man City (3:0) in the first match of ¼ Champions League finals.
But that victory was very difficult to gain because of an injury of Mohamed Salah who has opened the scored and was substituted. Even if the injury wasn’t serious (it is possible to suggest this by the way Salah was celebrating the victory with his partners after the match, standing straight) we doubt that the German coach of Liverpool will risk the health of the Egyptian, allowing him to play in derby.
One more factor, besides the mood which can prevent the nominal guests to show the best game is fatigue. After that speed which the Reds have shown during the 55 minutes of the match it is impossible to be restored in 64 hours.
Klopp has minimum space for rotation.
In the first circle the teams have ended the match at Anfield with a draw (1:1) though the hosts were stronger than the rival all the time and the opponent has used nearly the only chance. Virgil van Dijk during the Cup match in January which was the first one for him, the Dutch has brought to the new club a victory (2:1).
Everton to win 3.63
Draw – 3.43
Liverpool to win 2.13
think that the importance of the match and fatigue of the players of
Klopp will influence the match outcome. Besides it is impossible to
exclude problems which can return to the Reds in the absence of
Salah. So we wait for speed from the Toffees and we hope that they
won't lose in this fight.
