EVE Vs LIV Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Hurting Liverpool turn to today’s upcoming derby to redeem themselves in the league.
Ripping up records in the Premier League this entire year, Liverpool found themselves become part of another new record the last time they stepped out in the middle. However, it was one the club would have hated associating itself with the side becoming the recipient of the worst defeat as reigning champions of the marquee league.
Turning white as a sheet the last time they took to the middle, Liverpool their worst ever performance in a long time. Ripped into shreds and wiped the floor with, Liverpool were schooled 7-2, a calamitous and harrowing defeat which went down as one of the worst periods for the club in Klopp’s reign.
It was a result no one in the league envisaged, a performance which not only sent ripples across Liverpool’s rank but the league as well. The side was horrendous on the day, pulling off a defensive effort which the side will be wanting to forget at the earliest plausible.

That chastening defeat paired with a string of COVID positive cases at the club threw Liverpool into turmoil. It made the timing of the two week break all the more ideal with the side not only being accorded time to work on its issues but welcome players back from illnesses as well.
And the side will be needing every player today when it steps out to contest in one of the most hotly and feisty rivalries in the league. Given the rich patch of form Everton have hit as well this season, Liverpool know they can’t afford to slip up in the slightest if they are to win today.
This is going to be an edge of a seat thriller, one where Liverpool’s better defensive setup ends up handing them a win.

Top Goal Scorer
Everton Vs Brighton: 4-2
How Jordan Pickford continues to be Everton’s goal-keeper is a mystery many are trying to solve. He was dismal for England earlier in the week but we’ll still be opting for him today owing to the string of saves he’s set to rope his way today.
After being hit for seven goals, opting for a three man Liverpool backline was hardly well advised. However, one aberrate performance does not take away from the fact that this Liverpool side was the league’s most sublime defence last term, a backline more than capable of giving any side cold feet.
We will be making Andrew Robertson the first pick from the side given the manner in which he’s began the season. He’s been impeccable for the side, registering one goal and assist apiece to make him a must have selection.
CBs Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk join up with him with Liverpool in with a better chance of a cleansheet as compared to Everton.
For the first time since his transfer, Thiago Alacantra is set to make an appearance in Liverpool’s playing 11 from the start. Having recovered from Coronavirus in time for the outing, he’s all set to take over Liverpool’s midfield after a sensational cameo against Chelsea.
CDM Fabinho has been solid, someone who was put the brakes on attacking plays to see him join up with Thiago along with Sadio Mane who has the three goals.. Everton on the other hand will see us opt for the services of James Rodriguez who has taken little time to hit the ground running to accrue three goals and two assists already.
Abdoulaye Doucoure registered an assist the last time he stepped out to see him complete the duo from the home side.
Carlo Ancelotti has completely transformed Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s career. He’s accorded the striker a free hand to express himself, one the striker has taken with open hands to score a gargantuan 6 goals already.
With five goals in the league, Liverpool will be represented by Mohamed Salah.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The two goals he scored for Liverpool the last time around see Salah be our captain while Mane is the vice-captain.
Pickford, Andrew, Virgil, Gomez, Fabinho, Thiago, Doucoure, James, Dominic, Mane, Salah
