Everton 13/2 to be handed second Anfield penalty in 80 years
Everton are 13/2 to be handed a rare Anfield penalty this weekend, according to the latest odds.
The Toffees have been awarded just one spot-kick at the home of their local rivals in the last 80 years and the bookies have chalked up the odds on it happening for just the second time.
And we’re 14/1 that Taylor reduces both sides to ten men.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “With one penalty in 80 years, an Everton spot-kick at Anfield is rarer than Halley’s Comet, but Toffees fans will be hoping their luck changes this weekend.”
But the Toffees haven’t defeated their great rivals since 2010, and are yet to claim a win at Anfield in the 21st century.
