Liverpool are set to take on Everton in the Premier League game on Saturday afternoon, 01 April 2017 at Anfield what will be a very crucial game for both teams. Specially Liverpool who are in a real dogfight as far as their chances of finishing in the top 4. Currently sitting fourth with 56 points, 4 ahead of United but Reds have played two more games. If Liverpool drop points here and both Arsenal and United win their respective games it will open up the 3rd and 4th positions. The game is set to start at around 12:30 uk time and we will have live links right here on this page.
Liverpool 3-1 Everton Highlights
[ Premier League 2017 Match ]
08′ 1 – 0 Sadio Mane scored early in first half in just 8th minute to make it 1-0 for Liverpool.
28′ 1 – 1 Matthew Pennington equalized just before halfhour mark for Everton.

60′ 3 – 1 Divock Origi
As the last stretch of Premier League season gets underway this weekend after the international break we start off with a cracking mersey side derby at Anfield. Games between these two have been pretty close over the last few years and just like earlier in the season when Everton were undone in absolute last minute of the game thanks to Sadio Mane goal we can expect another thriller here.
Everton who are seventh in the table with 50 points can move to just 3 points off Liverpool with a win and incentive is great going into the business end of the season.
Everton 0-1 Liverpool – December 2016
[ Premier League 2016-17 Match ]
45′ [ Haltime Report ] Poor game by all standards. Neither team turned up in first half and not a single shot on target. Its that typical derby where neither team wants to lose
90′ 0 – 1 Sadio Mane scores off the rebound when Firmino’s shot hit the woodwork. Liverpool takes important all three points away from Goddison and go second in the table.
Team News & Lineups: Going into the game Jurgen Klopp will have Daniel Sturridge back in the squad and might find a place on bench considering Divock Origi’s goal scoring form. Firmino, Origi and Mane set to start upfront while Lallana, Henderson and Wijnaldum to play in midfield for Liverpool. Klopp is likely to keep Simon Mignolet in goal after dropping Karius against Middlesbrough.
Everton on the other hand can not wait for January transfer window to kick in as they are close to signing Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay on loan from United. But for now they will have to stick with what they have and we can expect unchanged side apart from Gareth Barry who was sent off against Arsenal. This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Monday night.
Match Predictions: When these two teams meet form leading up to the game goes out of the window and this is the case this monday night. Both teams are well rested with extra couple of days available to them and I expect a tight game where 1 goal might decide it. Liverpool are playing some scintillating football at the moment and I am going with them to take all three points in this game.
