Everton visits Anfield heading into a crucial match with Liverpool on Sunday, hoping to pick up a positive result as they hover above the dreaded relegation zone.
The Reds come into the match with a comfortable 4-0 victory over Manchester United, whereas the Toffees go into the game at the back of a 1-1 draw with Leicester City.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin will miss out on Sunday’s Merseyside derby at Anfield after picking up a quad injury in training which saw him being sidelined against the Foxes.
Frank Lampard will probably opt for a fluid 4-4-2 formation with several tweaks from the last game as he aims to stop Liverpool’s attacking trio.
4-4-2 Everton Predicted Lineup Vs Liverpool
Jordan Pickford is expected to start in goal for the upcoming home encounter. The English shot-stopper would hope to put up a strong performance to secure a clean sheet.
Michael Keane has been a consistent performer for Everton in defence, and along with Ben Godfrey, the duo would likely form the centre half partnership at the backline.
Full-backs Seamus Coleman and Vitaliy Mykolenko will continue to operate down the right and left-hand sides, respectively.
Fabian Delph and Allan will be playing in the holding position over the central midfield, with the former tasked with shielding the backline with a more defensive role.
Donny Van de Beek and Alex Iwobi will take up the wide positions, playing down the left and right-midfield, respectively. The duo would be determined to engineer some clear-cut goal-scoring chances for the men up front.
The Toffees’ attack will be spearheaded by Richarlison and Anthony Gordon. They will fancy their chances of finding the back of the net and creating trouble for the Liverpool backline, a defensive unit that has only conceded two goals in the last five Premier League matches.
