Away Everton

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Shot-shy Toffees. Everton have only scored eight goals in their eight Premier League games under Allardyce, drawing a blank in three of their last four. A striker has to be top of the shopping list in January, but until a goalscorer arrives a Liverpool clean sheet looks tempting at 11/10.

2 We fancy:

Liverpool to win to nil at 11/8. With the visitors struggling for goals and the Anfield crowd behind them, the Reds are favourites for this tie. Betting on Klopp’s side to win to nil could be a good way to improve your odds on the home win.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Everton to win from behind at 18/1. The Toffees managed to salvage a point despite being second best for much of the game in December. It’d be an impressive achievement if they can go one better and recover from going behind to progress to the next round.

The injury list is mounting for Jurgen Klopp, with Philippe Coutinho the latest concern. The Brazilian has a thigh problem that makes him a doubt for this one, with Reds supporters worried whether he’ll feature for their team again.

Salah is also a doubt and faces a late fitness test, while Jordan Henderson, Daniel Sturridge, Nathaniel Clyne, Alberto Moreno and Marko Grujic are all expected to miss out.

Sam Allardyce’s injury worries are easing, with the likes of James McCarthy and Yannick Bolasie making their returns in recent games. Ross Barkley is also nearing full fitness after undergoing surgery on his hamstring.

Ramiro Funes Mori is a long term absentee, while full-backs Seamus Coleman and Leighton Baines remain on the treatment table. Allardyce will be desperate to get those two back into his side, which would boost his side before defensively and going forward.

Liverpool vs Everton Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Liverpool’s Sadio Mane during the Premier League match at Anfield, Liverpool.

After a first defeat under Allardyce was quickly followed by a second against Manchester United on Monday, a victory over their great rivals would be the perfect tonic for Everton supporters. Liverpool meanwhile will look at the FA Cup as a great chance to win some silverware this season, and deliver a first trophy under Klopp.

Liverpool are 4/9 to progress in this one, and make it four wins on the bounce in all competitions. Despite the concerns over star men Salah and Coutinho, the hosts have plenty of strength going forward and will hope to be sharper in front of goal compared to when the teams met last month. Ragnar Klavan scored the injury time winner at Burnley on New Year’s Day, but his place in the team is at risk with the arrival of Virgil van Dijk, who could make his debut.

Everton are 7/1 to improve on the draw they took back across Stanley Park a few weeks ago. Allardyce could take the opportunity to rotate a few players after a hectic festive schedule, which would give the manager a chance to have a look at some of his fringe players. It’s doubtful there’ll be wholesale changes though, with so much importance riding on any game between these two.

The draw after 90 minutes is priced at 19/5, which is a bet that would’ve paid out in two of the last three FA Cup meetings between the teams. With no replays at this stage, you can choose to back either side to progress to the next round via extra-time or penalties. The odds on Liverpool shorten to 3/14 for this, while it’s 21/5 for the Toffees.

Roberto Firmino is 13/10 to score anytime, and he looks a good bet considering the players that could be absent for the Reds. The Brazilian has 16 goals in all competition already this season, and is 4/1 to bag the first goal of the game.

Rooney is 21/2 for the same bet. He’s the favourite to do so for Everton, with the bookmakers fancying 10 Liverpool players to open the scoring over the former England captain. It’s 7/2 for Rooney to score anytime, while Oumar Niasse and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are both priced at 4/1.

Predicted Score: Liverpool 2 - 0 Everton
