Liverpool will welcome Everton at Anfield this Monday night as both teams try to get the better of each other in the Merseyside derby. The Reds suffered a disappointing 3-0 loss away at Wolverhampton Wanderers recently. In contrast, the Toffees managed to earn a hard-fought 1-0 win over Arsenal last weekend which will give them a lot of confidence ahead of this game.
Liverpool vs Everton: Talking Tactics
Jurgen Klopp will probably stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and could ask his men to dominate the ball at the centre of the park and engineer enough clear-cut chances for the Reds to win this game.
Sean Dyche will opt for a 4-5-1 formation and could instruct his players to make life difficult for the home team and try to expose their weaknesses on the counter.
Diogo Jota should be back for this game, but Klopp will probably name him on his bench. Roberto Firmino is also inching closer to making a full return. However, this derby might come too soon for him.
Liverpool Predicted XI
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Matip, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Bajcetic; Salah, Nunez, Gakpo
Dominic Calvert-Lewin will miss this clash due to injury. Furthermore, Nathan Patterson and Michael Keane remain sidelined with injuries as well.
Everton Predicted XI
Pickford; Coleman, Coady, Tarkowski, Mykolenko; Iwobi, Onana, Gueye, Doucoure, McNeil; Maupay
Alisson Becker would need to be at the top of his game if Liverpool are to keep a clean sheet this Monday night.
The performance of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho could go a long way in determining the fate of this game.
Both Conor Coady and James Tarkowski need to be solid defensively if the Toffees want to earn a win at Anfield this Monday.
In the absence of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Neal Maupay has to find a way to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for Everton up top.
