The Liverpool FC midfielder and number 10, Philippe Coutinho.  In action wearing his home kit.  Classic red. Liverpool is playing with a great deal of confidence right now and the proof is in their record, as they are currently in the midst of a long undefeated streak.

Liverpool enters their Sunday clash with Everton in fourth position in the English Premier League table, though they have a game in hand on the third place team, Chelsea. Liverpool's strong play up until this point has put them into contention to finish in the top three in the league, which would be a major accomplishment given the reduced expectations heading into this season.

Combine that with some strong Champions League play so far, and you have a fan base that is suddenly happy with their club.

Everton will look to derail Liverpool's momentum on Sunday, though they will be up against it. Everton has underperformed so far this season and currently sit in the dead middle of the table.

The English football legend, Wayne Rooney, is back at his boyhood club.  He will look to prove a point vs. Liverpool on Sunday.

Here are the odds heading into Sunday's match:

Source: Bet365
Time Stamp: December 10th, 2017 3:43 am GMT
Odds Subject to Change

Liverpool, 1.30
Draw, 6.00
Everton, 11.00

Here are the three likeliest outcomes of Sunday's game:

Liverpool 2-0, 7.5
Liverpool 3-0, 8.5
Liverpool 1-0, 9.00


Everton has been absolutely putrid away from home this season, managing just 3 points over the course of 7 road games.

Liverpool, on the other hand, has been strong in front of their home fans, as they have managed 15 points in 7 home contests.

Liverpool, across all leagues, is currently in the middle of a long unbeaten streak, while Everton has been inconsistent at best.

Can Everton pull off the win on Sunday on enemy soil, or will Liverpool add to their unbeaten streak?
