Liverpool vs Everton betting tips and odds for the Merseyside derby; Sunday Mirror and Sunday People betting expert with tips for Arsenal vs Spurs and Chelsea vs Fulham in the Premier League too.

Byline: Alex Hankin

Back Gylfi Sigurdsson to show the strikers how it's done at Anfield.

Four managers in his first eight months undermined his Everton start - but the Iceland midfielder is firing now.

Goals in six of 14 club games this season is a better 'anytime scorer' return than many 'aces' likely to be on show this afternoon -- and not just obvious ones like Chelsea's Alvaro Morata, the marrow-footed muffer of Madrid.

On his 'anytime' strike-rate this season, Siggy rates better than Arsenal pair Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

He's better than two of Liverpool 's famously free-scoring front three right now as well.

Mo Salah and Harry Kane do still outrank him on raw 'anytime' numbers this season.

Good luck finding them at 5/1.

Siggy's record says he's a big-game monster too so the Merseyside derby (4.15pm) suits him fine.

No question leaky Everton are up against it on paper - but this game could open up and they've got tools to do damage of their own.

The 5/1 (Bet365) 'Sigurdsson anytime' is too big to ignore.

What do the savage rivalries of the North London derby and the Merseyside derby have in common?

Apart from that fans of all feathers think Jose Mourinho's a tit?

The answer is draws. Eight draws in the last 12 league meetings on Merseyside. Four of the last 12 in London.

And of today's four bosses, perhaps only Jurgen Klopp wouldn't just take another point if offered it this morning.

Punt the DRAW at Anfield (4/1) and the Emirates (13/5) as singles.

It's unlikely both games will be drawn, and that's why they call it a longshot -- the double pays 17/1 (Fred) . Levely jubbly!

Of course Fulham look ripe for a hiding at Stamford Bridge (12pm).

But line-ups and ambitions are murkier than normal post-Europe, so check Chelsea 's starters.

And if Eden Hazard gets rested again, for some or all of this, what happens to your goals-galore then?

Any dilly-dally would suit twinkly old dilly-donger Claudio Ranieri and Fulham, who went away and held both Liverpool and Manchester City to 2-0 last month.

You still fear for them, but the total-goals markets do look slightly overegged -- UNDER 3.5 goals is a value angle at 10/11 (Fred).
