Everton and Liverpool meet at Goodison Park, in a match for the 5th round of the Premier League. The record of direct confrontations in this stadium is favorable to the visiting team, which in the last 4 games won 1 and drew 3. But the last time these two teams met at this stadium was on 06-21-2020, for the Premier League, which ended in a draw by (0‑0). Liverpool present considerable differences in their results at home and as a visitor, so in this match the home factor may be decisive.
After 4 victories, the home team is currently in 1st position, with 12 points won. In their last match, they beat Brighton & Hove Albion at home by (4‑2), after having won (1‑2) away in the previous match, against Crystal Palace. This is a team that presents similar results at home and away, so it is not usually affected by the home factor, since in the last 30 games it has recorded 7 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses as a visitor; against 9 wins, 5 draws and 1 loss in his stadium. In their last 10 home games Everton has 6 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss.
In this competition, they won the last 4 matches they played. Their defense has not been very strong, since they have suffered goals in 3 of the last 4 matches, but their offense has scored regularly, since they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 4 matches for this competition.
Everton enter this day motivated, after a 4×2 victory at home over Brighton: Calvert-Lewin, Mina and James Rodríguez scored the winning goals. One of the great strengths of the home team is the ease with offensive stopped balls, as it often creates danger through this type of game. The home team must act in a 4-3-3, in which the three most advanced pieces are James Rodríguez, Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin. Coach Carlo Ancelotti will not be able to count on Cenk Tosun and Jean-Philippe Gbamin, handed over to the medical department.
The visiting team is currently in 5th position, with 9 points won, after 3 wins and 1 loss. In the penultimate match, they won at home against Arsenal by (3‑1). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Aston Villa by (7‑2). This is a stronger team with the support of its fans, since in the last 30 games it has registered 6 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses as a visitor; against 13 victories and 2 draws in his stadium. In their last 10 away matches, Liverpool has recorded 4 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses. Their defense has not been very solid, since they have suffered goals in 3 of the last 4 matches, but their offense has scored regularly, since they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 4 matches for this competition. In 15 games, they conceded the first goal 6 times, but got the comeback in 3.
Jurgen Klopp’s team comes to this day very unmotivated, after being thrashed 7×2 in the visit to Aston Villa. The visiting team generally operates in a 4-3-3 tactical system, with the three most advanced men being Diogo Jota, Salah and Firmino, combining speed with scoring efficiency. One of the great qualities of the Liverpool team is the way they have several players available, quickly, for the counterattack. The Liverpool coach should only have one absence for this game, due to injury, that of Sadio Mané.
