Schneiderlin To Return, Sigurdsson To Be Dropped | 3-4-3 Everton Predicted Lineup Vs Liverpool

Everton will travel across Stanley Park to face off against Liverpool at Anfield following a heart-breaking loss away at Leicester City last weekend. The Toffees are in dire need of a victory, but it won’t be easy for them to cause a fairy-tale upset in the Merseyside derby as they are just not playing well on the field. Even though there were some positive signs in their dogged performance against the Foxes, Marco Silva’s men will come up against a different beast when they face-off versus the Reds in midweek.

Jurgen Klopp’s players are currently looking invincible in the Premier League. They are yet to lose a domestic game this season. So the Blues would be in for a tough night’s work as the fate of their manager could be sealed based on the outcome of the derby.

3-4-3 Everton Predicted Lineup To Face Liverpool

Defence

Jordan Pickford will start in goal for the Toffees despite conceding two goals against the Foxes last weekend. Silva might opt to play with a back three comprised of Mason Holgate, Yerry Mina and Michael Keane. The defensive trio will have to find a way to stop Liverpool’s front three from scoring in the Merseyside derby.

Mina will also be an aerial threat from set-pieces, so Everton need to utilise him well when they earn free-kicks in the opposition half.

Midfield

Both Morgan Schneiderlin and Tom Davies will anchor the Toffees midfield as they focus on stopping the Reds from dominating possession at the centre of the park. Silva is expected to take a cautious approach so he might drop Gylfi Sigurdsson for this game in midweek. The out of form Icelandic international will have to be content with a place on the bench alongside Leighton Baines.

Djibril Sidibé is a nailed-on starter on the right-wing following a run of impressive displays since his return from injury. Lucas Digne will try to cause a few problems for the Liverpool defenders down the left flank.

Attack

Alex Iwobi and Richarlison will look to stretch the pitch out on the wide areas. Richarlison is in a rich vein of form at the moment and will be Silva’s most potent weapon going forward. 

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is expected to be given the responsibility to lead the line up top. The English striker tends to work hard for his team and will look to put in another tireless shift down the middle.
