Will the tears of victory be blue or red on Merseyside?

The Merseyside derby is the longest currently running top-flight derby in England, having been played at that level every season since 1962/63.  With so many families and friends supporting both clubs, it is not uncommon to see Evertonians and Liverpudlians sitting together during the derby.

But who will win the 2012/13 derby?

Everton have only won once in the last 6 head-to-heads with Liverpool.  However, with Everton residing comfortably in 4th place and having not lost a home game this season, can 12th place Liverpool bring back a victory?

Everton

  • Average 17 shots per game
  • Average 9.38 shots on target per game
  • Fellaini averages 4.3 shots per game
  • Baines makes 4.1 key passes per game
  • Have scored 4 goals from set pieces

Liverpool

  • Suarez averages 6.3 shots per game
  • Average 8.00 shots on target per game
  • Allen has a pass success rate of 92.9%
  • Have scored 7 goals from open play
  • Average 492 short passes per game

Statistically Liverpool have a better defense but will it be able to stand up to Everton’s attacking power this weekend?
