It’s FA Cup time! After the previous day that was full of some unexpected outcomes, today we are going to present you another exciting FA Cup match. It is the Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton. The game is set to start at 16:01 at Anfield.
What to expect from Liverpool
Bookies offer a lucrative odd of 2.10 for a win of Liverpool. But that is not a coincidence. We have already seen Liverpool underestimating the significance of another English tournament and let their young players take part against Aston Villa. It is clear that lifting the English Premier League title remains a top priority among defending the Champions League from last season. Jurgen Klopp is expected to rely on backup players and youngsters once again.
The tactics of Carlo Ancelotti
The appointment of Carlo Ancelotti has already made a positive impact on Everton’s performances as they recorded two consecutive wins and a loss against Manchester City in the last round. The Italian could revive the Toffees with his great experience and tactical knowledge. Moreover, he has already had EPL experience with Chelsea. We will not wonder if Everton finishes even in the top 6 this season.
Our betting prediction today 05.01.2020
Considering the changes that Klopp is going to make and the recent ascent of Everton, we would like to back the risky X2 Double Chance. Liverpool will do all it takes not to qualify in the next round and densify its schedule along with the coming battles in Champions League.
