Phil Neville believes Liverpool FC will be too powerful for Everton in the Merseyside derby at Anfield at the weekend.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will welcome Everton to the red half of Merseyside in search of successive Premier League victories.

Liverpool FC are unbeaten in their last six Premier League games with five victories and a 1-1 stalemate with Chelsea.

The Reds scored 19 goals in wins against Huddersfield Town, West Ham, Southampton, Stoke and Brighton.

Klopp’s men have also kept three clean sheets and conceded three goals in their last six outings in the Premier League.

However, Liverpool were 3-1 winners against Everton in their last Merseyside derby meeting at Anfield last term.

Everton haven’t won at Anfield since 1999 and the Toffees have struggled in the 2017-18 season so far.

Former Manchester United defender Neville believes Liverpool will beat Everton at Anfield this weekend.

“I haven’t got a sneaky prediction for Everton,” Neville told Irish radio station Newstalk.

“I think Liverpool are too powerful, too strong and too good for Everton at the moment.

“I think it could be a difficult afternoon for Sam.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season to secure a Champions League spot.
