Premier League Matchday 9 Preview: Everton Aiming to Upset Liverpool

After a weekend on the sidelines due to the international break, the 2023/24 Premier League season returns with a bang on Saturday.

The action gets underway at lunchtime with a mouthwatering Merseyside derby clash between Liverpool and Everton at Anfield.

Read on as we take a look at the standout games on Matchday 9 and assess some of the key betting angles to consider.


  • Everton hoping to spring derby surprise.
  • Short-priced treble looks tempting.
  • Villa aiming to end West Ham hoodoo.

Everton Face Tough Liverpool Test

Everton visit local rivals Liverpool on Saturday lunchtime hoping to boost their chances of climbing away from the relegation zone.

The Toffees have won two of their last three games in the Premier League and will head to Anfield believing they can take something from the match.

Logic suggests Liverpool should collect three points, but odds of 9/2 on football betting sites for the match to finish as a draw may tempt punters looking for a value bet.

Tasty Short-Priced Treble Could Pay Dividends

Manchester City and Newcastle United will fancy their chances of recording home victories over Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace this weekend.

City have won three out of three at home this season, while Newcastle have recorded three victories from their four outings at St James Park.

Adding Manchester United to win at Sheffield United creates a near 2/1 treble on new betting sites which could deliver a winning return for sports bettors.

Villa Fancied to End Miserable Run Against West Ham

Aston Villa have found West Ham to be a bit of a bogey side in recent years, with the Midlands club failing to defeat them in their last ten Premier League meetings.

However, Villa are a different animal under manager Unai Emery and make plenty of appeal at odds of 19/20 on UK betting apps to snap that streak this weekend.

Villa have rattled home 13 goals in three home league games this term and are fancied to see off the Hammers’ challenge on Sunday.
