Predicted Liverpool Lineup To Face Everton In The Premier League
A hostile Anfield witnessed a vintage Champions League night when Liverpool destroyed the mighty Manchester City 3-0. The Reds, however, now have to focus on their weekend trip to Goodison Park for the famous Merseyside derby against Everton. A top-4 finish is at stake for Liverpool as they aim to finish the season positively.
Probable Liverpool XI
Manager: Jurgen Klopp
Loris Karius (GK)
The German custodian has established himself as club’s No.1 ahead of Simon Mignolet and is now gradually earning acknowledgements for his compact displays.
Nathaniel Clyne (RB)
Trent Alexander-Arnold was sublime against Manchester City as he kept his cool and contained Leroy Sane throughout the game. He might now be rested for this game against the Toffees. Nathaniel Clyne could make his maiden appearance of the season.
Dejan Lovren (CB)
The Croatian was rock solid against the Cityzens and would be high on confidence ahead of the derby clash.
Virgil Van Dijk (CB)
The Dutchman scored a late winner against Everton in their FA Cup meeting earlier in the season and has brought back some much-needed resilience to the Liverpool back-line.
Alberto Moreno (LB)
The Spaniard was having a blistering campaign but lost his place to Andrew Robertson. The Scotsman has been a revelation but Moreno will have a point to prove if he starts against Everton.
Jordan Henderson (CDM)
The skipper led his side majestically against the Cityzens but is suspended for the second-leg. The Englishman, therefore, is likely to start against Everton.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (RCM)
Scored from 25 yards out against Manchester City and the ex-Arsenal star has now earned a crucial role in Klopp’s high-pressing football.
Georginio Wijnaldum ( LCM)
The Dutch international was introduced in place of Mohammed Salah on Wednesday night and might be handed a start against Everton.
Dominic Solanke (RW)
The young Englishman was handed a few minutes against the Cityzens and could start against Everton following Mohamed Salah’s groin strain.
Sadio Mane (LW)
The Senegalese winger was excellent this midweek and should start on Saturday.
Danny Ings (ST)
Roberto Firmino was taken off against Manchester City and the gaffer might hand him some much-needed rest ahead of the return leg tie. Danny Ings, now fit after seasons of injury nightmare, could be handed a start.
