Our match prediction:
There will be fireworks when the two bitter rivals Liverpool and Everton take on each other in the Merseyside derby at Anfield. The Reds will be looking to build on back-to-back wins over Stoke City and Bournemouth, but Wednesday’s football match against the Toffees will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Roberto Martinez’s men played out a 1-1 draw with Southampton at the weekend and it has to be noted that they shared the spoils with their rivals in previous three league fixtures. Seeing that both teams will go for a win in the Anfield showdown, there is every chance we will see a lively contest in Wednesday’s Merseyside derby and we predict that both teams will find the net this time out. When Liverpool and Everton faced at Goodison Park in the reverse fixture they played out a 1-1 and we would not be surprised if history repeats itself.
