How Liverpool could line up against Everton

Sports Mole looks at how Liverpool could line up for Sunday's FA Cup clash with Everton at Anfield.

Liverpool will be expected to produce a dominant performance when they host local rivals Everton in the FA Cup third round on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp's men are flying in the Premier League but will be conscious of the fact that they have not gone past the fourth round of this competition since 2015.

Everton, bolstered by the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti, head into the game knowing that the club have not won at Anfield since the 1999-2000 season.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Liverpool could line up for this fixture.


Out: Dejan Lovren (thigh), Fabinho (ankle), Joel Matip (knee), Xherdan Shaqiri (thigh), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (ankle), Naby Keita (groin), Rhian Brewster (ankle), Nathaniel Clyne (knee)

Following a remarkably hectic Christmas period, Klopp inevitably finds himself inundated with a number of injuries, and as such will want to rest players as much as possible.

Over on the right hand side of defence, for example, the German is likely to include youngster Ki-Jana Hoever, who has impressed in that position over the past year.

Beyond that, however, Klopp is likely to be forced into using the standard trio of Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Andy Robertson due to injuries to Lovren, Matip and Clyne.

Further forward, captain Jordan Henderson appears poised to start the game alongside Giorginio Wijnaldum after both players featured against Sheffield United.

James Milner was also part of the midfield trio, but the veteran may be rested in favour of Klopp inserting the more attacking presence of Adam Lallana, who came off the bench on Thursday.

Over on the right, this is a perfect game for Harvey Elliott, Liverpool's only notable signing of last summer, to endear himself to the Anfield crowd having shown glimpses of talent in four appearances so far this term.

Down the middle, in the interest of resting both Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, Klopp is highly likely to select Divock Origi - somebody who loves scoring against Everton.

Having scored an injury-time winner at Anfield against the Toffees last season, the Belgian netted twice during the 5-2 success in the same fixture this time last month, and he will be expected to wreak further havoc against Liverpool's Merseyside rivals.
