Everton vs Liverpool preview, betting tips and prediction: Can Sam Allardyce find a way to stop Mohamed Salah
Mohamed Salah to score first @ 11/4 with Betfair
When Mohamed Salah arrived at Liverpool from Roma in the summer, it was acknowledged that the Reds had signed a very good player with a point to prove after a disappointing spell at Chelsea earlier in his career. But nobody expected what has happened since; when Liverpool travel across the city for a Merseyside derby against Everton on Saturday, Salah will be looking for his 30th Premier League goal of a stunning season, which has seen him make history as the highest scoring debutant for the Reds. Every opponent has tried and failed to stop him so far this season, and now it is the turn of Sam Allardyce to try and keep him quiet. At this point, though, that feels like an impossible mission.

It has been a disappointing season for the Toffees, and Allardyce has not been very popular with the fans since arriving in November. But a win in the Merseyside derby will go a long way to improving that particular relationship. Despite a comprehensive loss at home to champions-elect Manchester City last weekend, Everton have a decent record at home this term. But as has been the case all season, Salah can make the difference and we expect the same from him here. Grab these Betfair free bets!
