Everton predicted lineup vs Liverpool – Premier League

Jeered off the pitch following their defeat to Brentford, Everton face the small matter of a Merseyside Derby as they host Liverpool at Goodison Park.

Rafa Benitez’s side have lost five of their last seven in the league, sliding down to 14th in the table after a promising start to the campaign.


They will take confidence from their last Merseyside Derby encounter, where they ended their long wait for a victory over their bitter rivals with a 2-0 win at Anfield last season.

Here’s how the Toffees could line up.

Jordan Pickford (GK) – His challenge on Virgil van Dijk in last season’s meeting at Goodison Park is sure to add some extra needle to this fixture.

Seamus Coleman (RB) – An Everton stalwart, the team’s recent form will be hurting the Irishman more than anyone.

Ben Godfrey (CB) – Has suffered a dip in form this season, but a strong showing against Liverpool could help him rediscover his confidence.

Michael Keane (CB) – The leader in the heart of the Everton defence.

Lucas Digne (LB) – The Frenchman has superstar qualities which Liverpool will need to be wary of.

Abdoulaye Doucoure (CM) – There was a fear that the midfielder could be missing for a sustained period of time, but his return has been welcomed with open arms by Benitez.

Allan (CM) – The Brazilian adds steel to the Toffees’ midfield.

Anthony Gordon (LM) – As an Everton academy graduate the 20-year-old needs no history lesson on the importance of this game.
