The Merseyside Derby is one of the most played fixtures in the English FA Cup. The two sides have met on 24 occasions. The Reds have won 11 matches; whereas the Toffees have won it on 7 occasions. The amount of football being played lately is giving nightmares to the managers, who are trying their best to rotate their players.
Klopp & Co. look confident on the basis of their current run in the Premier League and European football; however they have lost their FA cup ties played in January for two consecutive years. They lost against West Brom in 2018 and against Wolves in 2019. Liverpool definitely needs a result from this game as they cannot afford for a reverse fixture at Stanley Park. Liverpool fans will be hoping to see their new signing, Takumi Minamino in this game.
The stage is perfectly set for Ancelotti to come in and use his magic wand in favor of the Toffees. Ancelotti is Everton’s final throw of the dice in order to salvage their season. Everton definitely will have an uphill battle at Anfield; especially when they haven’t won there since 1999.
Arsenal: Naby Keita, Dejan Lovren & Xherdan Shaqiri (thigh), Alex Oxlade Chamberlain (ankle), Joel Matip, Fabinho and Nathaniel Clyne (knee)
Everton: Jean-Phillipe Gbamin and Alex Iwobi (thigh) and Andre Gomes (ankle).
It’s a tough job for the managers to file in their playing XI and probably tougher for me to predict that, I have predicted the line up considering the importance of a Merseyside derby.
Liverpool: Adrian, Williams, Hoever, Phillips, Lorouci, Milner, Lallana, Jones, Elliott, Origi and Minamino.
Everton: Pickford, Keane, Mina, Holgate, Sigurdsson, Delph, Baines, Coleman, Schneiderlin, Kean and Tosun
FA Cup 2019-20
Match: Liverpool vs Everton
Date & Time: 5th January 2020, Sunday, 09:31 PM IST
Liverpool: Origi, Lallana and Milner
Everton: Moise-Kean, Coleman and Sigurdsson
LIV vs EVE Dream 11 Goalkeeper
I am anticipating Ancelloti to go with an all out attack to win this tie and that’s the reason I have selected a regular defensive unit for the visitors and Jordan Pickford who has played an important role for the visitors so far this season will be my first choice goalkeeper in this tie.
LIV vs EVE Dream 11 Defenders
Yerry Mina, Mason Holgate and Michael Keane all three are regular Everton defenders and have an excellent chemistry while defending for the Blues. Ancelloti is planning for a solid defensive unit for this game as Mina, Holgate and Keane would play a complete defensive role and Coleman and Baines would play a full-back’s role. Uncharacteristically I am expecting a possession play by Everton.
LIV vs EVE Dream 11 Midfielder
Gylfi Sigurdsson is expected to play a typical play makers role and I anticipate him to assist goals with his experience, Adam Lallana and James Milner provide solidity to the homeside in midfield and I have selected them for the commitment and the work rate they showcase in every game. Curtis Jones will have the opportunity to start here for Liverpool, Jones featured in the Carbao Cup games against Milton Keynes Dons and Arsenal. Lightening quick speed and ability to play on both flanks makes the 18 year old special.
LIV vs EVE Dream 11 Strikers
I anticipate four main options who can start the Merseyside Derby. Moise-Kean Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino I have left out Cenk Tosun. Origi has scored on every single occasion Liverpool has played Everton and Minamino has been a sensation with Red Bull Salzburg and is expected to do well here for Liverpool. Since It came to the bottom and I had to choose between Moise-Kean and Tosun; I have gone with Moise-Kean de to his speed and his positioning in the opposition box, which gives him more opportunities to score.
LIV vs EVE Dream 11 Power Players
Due to goal scoring abilities I have selected Origi as my Captain and Moise-Kean as my Vice Captain.
