Odds, picks & predictions
Moneyline pick: Liverpool -255
After going winless in their first three matches of the season, Liverpool bounced back in a huge way in Matchday 4 action when they tied the record for biggest EPL win with a staggering 9-0 victory over Bournemouth. Luis Diaz and Roberto Firmino each scored a brace, while Harvey Elliott, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, and Fabio Carvalho each added a goal of their own. Bournemouth defender Chris Mepham was credited with an own goal as well early in the second half.
Everton have struggled to even find a win yet this season, losing their first two matches while ending the last three in 1-1 draws. They’ll hope to at least get a point when Liverpool makes the nearly one-mile trip from Anfield to Goodison Park but if the Reds have anything to say about it, they’ll be leaving their rivals’ stadium with all three points.
The Toffees narrowly escaped relegation last season, and it looks like they could be in danger again this season if the first five matches are any indication as to how Frank Lampard’s side will fare through all 38 games. They currently sit in 17th place with just three points, while Liverpool has climbed to fifth place with eight. Back the Reds to get the win in this one.
