Liverpool host Everton at the Anfield on Sunday night as both sides look to get the better of each other in this Premier League match. The Reds managed to secure a 4-0 win over Manchester United in their last league game, so they will be full of confidence ahead of this match. In contrast, the Toffees could achieve a 1-1 draw against Leicester City in midweek, which has halted their momentum ahead of this weekend’s game.
Liverpool Vs Everton: Talking Tactics
Jurgen Klopp will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and ask his players to dominate the ball and engineer enough clear-cut chances to win this league clash at Anfield.
Frank Lampard will probably opt for a 4-4-2 formation and could instruct his men to defend their penalty box well and try to capitalize if the Liverpool defenders are caught off-guard on the counter.
Roberto Firmino had picked up a foot injury at the end of the FA Cup semi-final win against Manchester City, but Klopp feels he could return for the Merseyside derby.
Liverpool Predicted XI
Alisson; Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Firmino, Mane
After picking up a quad injury in training, Dominic Calvert-Lewin will miss out on the Merseyside derby. Otherwise, the Toffees have no fresh injury concerns to cope with in midweek.
Everton Predicted XI
Pickford; Coleman, Keane, Godfrey, Mykolenko; Allan, Delph, Iwobi, Van de Beek; Gordon, Richarlison
The Reds will rely on the creativity of Mane, Firmino and Salah as they look to collectively produce a winning performance over the weekend.
Thiago will be tasked with creating chances for the attacking trio, whereas Alisson will be expected to make some solid stops at the back.
Jordan Pickford will have to make a few good saves at the back if the Toffees are to keep a clean sheet in this game. Both Richarlison and Gordon will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload on their own up top.
