Charlie Nicholas makes prediction for Everton VS Liverpool

Liverpool return in action on June 21 with a game against Everton as the 2019/20 Premier League season resumed from a suspension due to coronavirus pandemic. The Reds are looking forward to lifting the Premier League trophy as they are currently leading the league table with 22-points ahead of second-placed Manchester City. Ahead of the game, Sky Sports' Charlie Nicholas has made his prediction for the Merseyside derby. "You want fans every time in this, but there is no way Everton will be happy with this scenario. They were humiliated by a young Liverpool side in the FA Cup. "Everton probably should have won that game but they didn't, and the Evertonians were disgraced and embarrassed. There is no way that even without fans, players will not be aware of what is going on and what is at stake here. They will be up for it. "With Man City, you saw it took them a bit of time to get going, against an Arsenal side with the strength of plasticine. Liverpool will get into gear, but referees in the Bundesliga have been giving cards out more frequently, as they are not under pressure from fans. Everton will get at them and get in their face. "They need to stop the balls through to front three and into Roberto Firmino. I could see it being riddled with mistakes with the combination of some quality. How high will Everton allow Liverpool's full-backs to play? That is the key for Liverpool. Will Richarlison work back and will Carlo Ancelotti have blockers in place for both of those? Everton will play a cautious and physical game. They both need a game in their system but I am expecting a thrill of a Sunday night match." Charlie's prediction is a 2-2 draw. source - Sky Sports
