The ‘friendly derby’ enjoys its latest renewal on Friday and with the Anfield roar behind them, Liverpool should have enough to take the spoils against old rivals Everton.
As this game is an FA Cup tie, neither manager has an excuse to leave anything behind but their parallel goals in the Premier League mean both Jurgen Klopp and Sam Allardyce are likely to rotate.
Various reasons mean Klopp will be without some of his stars, while ‘Big Sam’ is known for sacrificing the cup competitions.
However, the Toffees form has dipped in recent weeks and Allardyce will not be too sad about going out of the cup at the first stage.
Liverpool are also a team on fire and should have no trouble defeating their local rivals, having avoided defeat in the last 20 meetings between the pair at Anfield.
It is sure to be a thriller but it seems hard to look past the Reds win to zero at 5/4.
Another price that stands out is the 6/4 for Udinese to win at Chievo in Serie A.
The Zebrette have won five in a row in the league and with Verona not winning in as many, including succumbing to Benevento last time out, Massimo Oddo’s good run can continue.
