It looks to have turned into a three-horse race for the Premier League title but there’s an interesting battle developing just off the pace as four teams fight it out for that final Champions League berth.
Two of those sides, Liverpool and Everton, are separated by just a point as they prepare to go head-to-head at Anfield in a crucial Merseyside derby and after the pair played out a 3-3 thriller in the reverse fixture at Goodison Park, there’s every chance that this one could be a cracker.
Home advantage means the Reds are odds-on favourites at 17/20 with William Hill but that looks a touch skinny even though the Toffees, bet365′s 7/2 outsiders, have a dismal recent record in their neighbour’s backyard.
BetVictor post 29/10 against the stalemate and that looks about the best match bet given that there’s little between the teams while Boylesports post a generous 15/4 against a score draw.
More specifically, a 1-1 scoreline is a 15/2 chance at BetVictor and in attack it’s the two usual suspects that can make an impact.
For the hosts, the unstoppable Luis Suarez is 5/6 (Winner.com) to net at any time having struck in three of his four derby appearances and at the other end Romelu Lukaku is 12/5 with Skybet to add to his four in four against Liverpool at some point.
