Liverpool host Everton in the Merseyside derby as they aim to climb into the Premier League’s top four.

Former England striker Michael Owen is convinced Liverpool will secure a win over Everton in the Merseyside derby.

The Reds, who haven’t had much joy at Anfield in recent weeks, host Carlo Ancelotti's Toffees, who have suffered back-to-back defeats, on Saturday afternoon.

As we all know, Liverpool have not to lost to their local rivals at home in over two decades, and Owen believes the record will continue when both sides meet today.

He told BetVictor: "Although Liverpool are winless in five at Anfield, Tuesday’s away win against Leipzig in the Champions League will have given the players a huge lift.

"Everton arrive here in great form on the road. The Toffees are undefeated in their last 7 away matches in the Premier League, so they should be in good spirits ahead of this one.

"That said, Liverpool looked a lot more like their old self midweek. Mo Salah was excellent again, and if he’s in the mood, he could play a big part.

"Unfortunately for Everton, I think they’ll have to wait a bit longer for that Anfield win. I’m siding with the Reds to shade it in what should be an entertaining derby."
