EVERTON will have high hopes of ending their derby drought today but I'm not as confident as the Goodison support.

The Toffees top the table after a four-match winning start but Liverpool head across the city knowing they haven't lost to their rivals for 10 years over 22 games.

It's a mouth-watering fixture to restart the Premier League after the international break and while I have doubts over Everton I have no worries about the game producing goals.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will have spent the past two weeks having nightmares about his side's 7-2 loss at Aston Villa while rival Carlo Ancelotti will have loved seeing the champions exposed so badly as they defended almost on the halfway line.

I expect a massive response from Liverpool who crucially have Sadio Mane back but the safest bet is to go with goals at both ends, especially as Adrian will remain between the sticks with Alisson out for around six weeks. Both to score is best 1-2 with McBookie.

Everton will tempt some at 11-4 with McBookie, the draw is 16-5 at bet365 with Liverpool just under evens with most firms.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin's stunning start to the season earned him an England call-up and he rewarded Gareth Southgate's faith with a goal against Wales.

The new cap is 13-8 at BetVictor to score again and 6-1 with bet365 to break the deadlock while Mane is 7-5 with bet365 to mark his return with a goal.

Saturday'ssecond game is Chelsea vs Southampton and this should be a comfortable win for the Blues whose new men are beginning to settle in.

Frank Lampard has a frightening array of talent at his disposal and have won seven out of eight at home. They are a biggest 1-2 at Betfred.

Next up is another potential cracker as Man City entertains an Arsenal side who beat them 2-0 in the FA Cup semis back in July.

Mikel Arteta returns to the Etihad to tackle old boss Pep Guardiola and under the Spaniard, the Gunners have played well against the better teams.

City have lost 5-2 at home to Leicester and drawn 1-1 at Leeds so on the face of it there is nothing for Arsenal to fear and they look big at 13-2 with BetVictor.

A draw is possible at bigger than 4-1 and I fancy Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the FA Cup two-goal hero, to net at 37-20 at 888sport.

Finally, we have another potential blockbuster as Newcastle entertains a Man United outfit still smarting from their 6-1 thrashing at home to Spurs.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men have conceded 11 goals in three league games and the way Harry Maguire conceded a penalty and saw red summed how they have no case for the defence.

Again there should be goals here with both to score paying 3-4 at bet365 and I fancy Newcastle not to lose at 13-10 with McBookie.
