Everton and Liverpool will play their twenty-fourth game of the Premier League season at Goodison Park on Saturday, 7th February. The two teams clashed against each other last time in September 2014 at Anfield and the match drew 1-1. Now, the two team will battle in Goodison Park and this time Liverpool is the hot-favorite to dominate this game.
After a sluggish start of the season, Liverpool have stabilized themselves and they are slowly moving to the upper ranks of Premier League table. Liverpool is fixated at the seventh position in the league with 38 points having won 11 games, drawn 5 and lost 7. Plus, they currently have a stuuning streak of six games without a defeat.
On the other hand, Everton have been in pretty lousy form since the very start of the season. They have won only one of their last six meetings in Premier League. And, Everton have been dealt a crushing blow with the tragic news that James McCarthy is out of the Merseyside derby due to a hamstring problem. At present Everton is twelfth in the league with 26 points having won 6 games, drawn 8 and lost 9.
