Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that Liverpool will win against Everton at home in the Merseyside derby this weekend.

The Reds will take on Everton at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Owen wrote on Betvictor.com: “Liverpool have scored 12 goals in their last two games and it will be some feat if Sam Allardyce were able to get a point for his Everton side who will find the Reds at Anfield a different proposition to his first challenge as Blues manager – Huddersfield at Goodison.

“Liverpool are high in confidence, have pace and power in abundance and it could be a very long afternoon for the Blue half of Merseyside.”

A footnote added: “Tip: Liverpool -1 on the handicap at 8/11”

Liverpool are in great form at the moment and are scoring goals for fun, and given Everton’s problems at the back so far this season, the Reds are pretty much guaranteed to score.

The Reds, though, are still vulnerable defensively, and the Toffees should be able to take advantage of this and score a goal themselves.

Sam Allardyce will be determined to make an impact for Everton in the Merseyside derby, and the former Newcastle United and West Ham United manager will have a plan to stop the Reds’ fierce some attack.

Despite the match being at Anfield, one should not be surprised if Everton pick up a point by scoring a late goal.
