Given that Liverpool have not lost over the last 20 years at home to their neighbours Everton, it would be ironic if the struggling Toffees were the club to finally end the Reds’ unbeaten run this season.Their clash is the latest in a lob-sided rivalry that Liverpool have dominated over the last decade and there will be few punters putting money on Everton being able to pull off an upset.But then it is also worth considering the obvious fatigue that is mounting on Liverpool, who are increasingly having to grind their way to results while looking tired and vulnerable.It is inevitable that a crash must come as the relentless conveyor belt of fixtures takes a toll. The question punters must ponder is when?They had to hang on for victory over Brighton at the weekend, which saw them move to 40 points out of a possible 42.It is incredible record-breaking stuff from Jurgen Klopp’s men, but without the conviction such dominance would usually depict.Leicester City are now in second place in the EPL after their VAR-inspired win over Everton on Sunday, which was a seventh successive victory.No wonder that manager Brendan Rodgers has been linked with the vacant Arsenal job, but why would he leave the Foxes now as they climb up above the likes of champions Manchester City and sit 13 points ahead of the Gunners.Leicester are at home to bottom-placed Watford in what should be a banker. Watford sacked Quique Sanchez Flores after just 85 days into a second spell as manager and will have their under-23 coach Hayden Mullins in charge.Manchester City dropped more points at the weekend as their weaknesses were again exposed. There looks a lack of motivation after dominating the last two campaigns, plus defensive frailties which will be tested tonight at Burnley.The Premier League is now heading to the busy holiday period when resources are really stretched and it is often the time when the seeds of success or failure are sewn, making December a vital month for all.
It’s also a vital time for TAB soccer customers looking to add to their Festive Season spend and TAB has ensured several inflated payouts over the next few days with carryovers totalling over R1 million.
The carryover action starts Wednesday with a R100,000 add-in to Soccer 10.
