class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With Calvert-Lewin doubtful due to injury, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Brazilian to fire past the Reds' weakened defence for Ancelotti's men
Liverpool will need to get their front three firing when Everton visit Anfield for Saturday’s Premier League clash.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have scored just a single goal in their last four matches on home turf – a Mohamed Salah penalty in their 4-1 defeat against Manchester City.
The Egypt international has actually scored seven goals in his last seven matches, taking his tally to 24 for the season in all competitions.
That return makes it no wonder Salah is priced at a relatively narrow 12/5 (3.40) with bet365 to open the scoring in a massive game in the battle for the top four, and 4/7 (1.57) to strike anytime.
Sadio Mane has been far less prolific so far this season, hitting the back of the net just 11 times in total and scoring only six times in his last 21 appearances.
However, the 28-year-old does tend to enjoy these occasions – scoring in four of his nine Merseyside derbies since joining the club – and can be backed at 10/11 (1.91) to get on the scoresheet once again.
Nobody could do with a morale-boosting goal more than Roberto Firmino, who is unlikely to attract too much attention at 6/5 (2.20) after a run of one just goal scored in 13 appearances.

At the other end of the pitch, Carlo Ancelotti is likely to have to make do without top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin as he struggles to shake off a hamstring injury.
In his absence, Richarlison is likely to lead the line once again after finding a way past Manchester City’s watertight defence in Wednesday’s 3-1 defeat – his third goal in three fixtures.
Considering Liverpool’s long injury list in defence and failure to keep a clean sheet in six league matches, odds of 10/1 (11.00) seem very generous on the Brazilian breaking the deadlock at Anfield – as well as 3/1 (4.00) anytime odds.
Josh King provides another attacking option following his deadline day move from Bournemouth and can be backed at 10/3 (4.33) to open his account for the Toffees with a derby goal, while Gylfi Sigurdsson is a 4/1 (5.00) shot after scoring in two of his last five appearances.
