Everton will clash heads with Liverpool at Anfield this Saturday as they try to grind out a good result in the Merseyside derby. The Toffees managed to pick up a comfortable 3-0 win over Bournemouth before the international break which would give them some confidence going into this clash.
Sean Dyche will set his team up in a 4-4-1-1 formation and could name an unchanged first XI for this game. Hence, we can once again expect to see Dominic Calvert-Lewin lead the charge for the Toffees on his own up top.
4-4-1-1 Everton Predicted Lineup To Face Liverpool
Jordan Pickford will operate in between the sticks for Everton after securing a clean sheet in his last league match. James Tarkowski will operate along with Jarrad Branthwaite at the centre of Dyche’s defence as they look to frustrate the Liverpool attackers throughout the 90 minutes.
Ashley Young will once again fill in as the right-back while Vitaliy Mykolenko hopes to give a good account of himself as the left-back. Both of them will have their hands full as they try their best to contain the opposition wide players.
Ben Godfrey and Nathan Patterson will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Amadou Onana and James Garner will anchor the midfield for the visitors as they focus on making life difficult for the opposition at the centre of the park.
Dwight McNeil will try to put in a hard-working performance on the left flank while James Harrison looks to put his pace to good use on the right-wing.
Abdoulaye Doucoure will once again operate as Dyche’s primary attacking midfielder. Everton will rely on his running power to cause problems for the home team on the counter.
Arnaut Danjuma will be named on the bench as he waits for his chance to make an impact in the second half if needed.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin will spearhead Everton’s attack in the final third. He would be eager to pose a threat inside the Liverpool penalty area this weekend.
Beto will have to settle for a spot on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the latter stages if the Toffees are in need of a goal by then.
