Everton currently lead the way in he battle for Merseyside supremacy by a couple of points but it could be neck-and-neck after the Toffees visit Stoke and Liverpool entertain Fulham.
That’s because David Moyes’ men, a 7/4 chance with William Hill ahead of the Britannia Stadium clash, might have to settle for a point against the Potters, who held Arsenal on their own patch on Saturday.
Some punters might also fancy Liverpool to share the spoils against the Cottagers given that more than half of their home matches have finished all square but Martin Jol’s team were thumped 4-0 just across the park from Anfield at the weekend and buoyed by their comfortable triumph at Norwich, the Reds look worthy favourites at 8/13 (Coral).
Ladbrokes quote another victory ‘to nil’ for Kenny Dalglish’s charges at 7/4, Stan James chalk 15/2 against Liverpool notching twice without reply and doubling up a Reds success with a draw for their neighbours comes in at 17/4 via BetVictor.
Double on Liverpool and a Stoke v Everton draw – 17/4 (BetVictor)
