Liverpool News and Form – Can Liverpool see off the Toffees?

Well, Liverpool managed to put together an unbeaten year in the Premier League after beating Sheffield United in midweek. Now their busy season turns to the FA Cup. Boss Jurgen Klopp this week said that he only has 12 fit outfield players, so will be making changes. Liverpool have won all of their Premier League games at Anfield this season and it has just been impressive numbers all the way from them. But last season they lost in the third round of the FA Cup at Wolves.

Liverpool to win from behind


It wasn’t a big priority for them as they were chasing league glory. The Reds have actually lost three of their last four FA Cup games now, each defeat happening by a one-goal margin. Liverpool have actually only taken one win in their last five FA Cup home games as well and only two in their last eight (D4 L2). Two of Liverpool’s last three FA Cup fixtures at Anfield have ended in defeat against Wolves and West Brom. The one successful FA Cup match in that sequence at Anfield was their 2018 win over Everton.

Everton News and Form – Can Ancelotti get Everton past Liverpool?

Carlo Ancelotti, who won the FA Cup with Chelsea while he was the interim boss there in 2010. So there is some affinity there with this trophy. Everton have looked better since the Italian arrived at Goodison Park, having taken a W2 L1 record in the top flight. The one defeat was a one-goal margin loss at Manchester City on New Years’ Day. While they have poor form out at Anfield and had a harrowing experience there earlier in the Premier League season, can the Toffees prevail?

Everton have lost four of their last five FA Cup matches, though. Last season they were sent packing in the fourth round away at Millwall. The Toffees have lost back to back away games in the FA and four of their last six (W2). Everton have scored at least two goals in four of their last five away games in the competition, but will they have enough on the day to overpower Liverpool? For a squad that has won three of its last ten games only across all competitions, punters may have their doubts even against an understrength Liverpool.

Liverpool vs Everton Predictions

Liverpool to win: Even though the Reds may not be at full strength, they are likely to have match-winners in their ranks. Everton have made progress under Ancelotti but coming up with a victory at Anfield still may be too tall of an ask for them.
