At Anfield, the Toffees are without a win in 12 Premier League games, losing six including five of the last eight. Liverpool are available at 1.98.


Under David Moyes, Everton have played 44 away games against the traditional "big four" and are yet to win. They have taken just 17 points from 132 on offer. Liverpool  are 1.44 in the Draw No Bet market.


Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard scored only his second Premier League hat-trick in this fixture last season. Gerrard is 2.74 to find the net.
