While the Premier League took a short break in England will host the matches of the national Cup. In one of them, “Liverpool” will try to beat “Everton”, a championship match with which he finished at home in the first round in a draw 1: 1.
For the upcoming meeting, the “reds” fit perfectly. Pre-Christmas marathon team Jurgen Klopp succeeded. In the last five Premier League matches, Liverpool have only drawn 3-2 with Arsenal, beating Bournemouth 4-0, Swansea 5-0, Leicester 2-1 and Burnley 2-1. Thanks to such results, the Merseyside players were fixed on the fourth line in the standings, only three points behind the second MJ.
“Everton” after the departure of Ronald Cooman, with whom the team approached the relegation zone and fell into the number of fighters for survival, now significantly increased in the game. The appearance of Sam Allardyce in the team in November played a positive role for the “toffee”. Under his leadership, “Everton” did not lose for seven matches. There were victories over Huddersfield, Apollo, Newcastle and Swansea, as well as tied matches with West Bromwich, Chelsea and Liverpool. Still, the absence of a long bench along with injuries made themselves felt. Last two matches, “Everton” lost to “Bournemouth” and “Manchester United”.
