Our resident betting expert expects an exciting encounter between the two clubs, and is tipping Luis Suárez and Nikica Jelavić to net in a last-four meeting which should see plenty of goals.
Suárez was unlucky not to get on the score-sheet in the 217th Merseyside derby. The Uruguayan striker played a part in each of Steven Gerrard’s three goals against the Toffees back in March. The 24-year-old has three goals in his last six games, and 8/5 for Suárez to score at any time at Wembley is good value in this one.
Liverpool boast a perfect record against Everton this season. They beat the Toffees 2-0 at Goodison Park back in October, while Gerrard’s impressive hat-trick sealed a 3-0 win at Anfield in March. The Reds have won four of the last six encounters, with Everton winning just once. So, Liverpool to beat Everton at Wembley is a solid bet at 6/4.
Liverpool have scored at least two goals in their three last meetings with the Toffees. Furthermore, each of the Reds’ previous FA Cup games this season have finished with over 2.5 goals. Meanwhile, Everton are in superb goal-scoring form, with 12 goals in their last five games. So the Tipster considers over 2.5 goals a value bet at 5/4.
David Moyes has built a reputation as a shrewd mover in the transfer market and Nikica Jelavić looks to be an excellent signing. The Croatia striker has netted four goals in five starts for the Toffees, taking his tally for the season with Rangers and Everton to 19 goals. It’s been six games since Liverpool kept a clean sheet and the Tipster is backing Jelavić to score on Saturday at 2/1.
Liverpool have a reputation for coming back from losing positions to win cup final. Who can forget their Champions League success in Istanbul and the Gerrard final, when the Reds won the FA Cup in 2006? The Tipster’s audacious long-range effort for this edition is for Liverpool to come from behind and beat Everton at 7/1. You heard it here first.
