EPL: Pundit Gives Prediction For Merseyside Derby Between Liverpool And Everton

BBC Sports pundit Mark Lawrenson has tipped Premier League leaders Liverpool to get their first clean sheet of the season during the Merseyside Derby clash with Everton.

Liverpool are yet to keep a single clean sheet in 14 league games this season but club legend turned pundit Mark Lawrenson believes that run will end at home to city rivals Everton.

According to him, he expects his former team to beat Everton 2-0 thereby piling up more misery on Toffees boss Marco Silva who’s under serious pressure to keep his job.

The Everton manager has led the team to just four victories in the Premier League all season and that has left them in a precarious situation on the league table.

Everton are just two points above the relegation zone at the moment after 14 league games ahead of a testing run of fixtures starting with the Merseyside Derby clash at the home of Liverpool.

The Toffees will also face other top six members like Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City after the Liverpool game.

The big news for Liverpool ahead of the Everton game is the suspension of first choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker due to the red card from the last game at home to Brighton.

Second choice Adrian is expected to deputise in goal for him.
