LEAKED: Liverpool Starting Lineup to Face Everton in FA Cup Tonight!

 

​Liverpool host Everton in Friday’s Merseyside derby as the duo lock horns in the FA Cup third round.
A 1-1 draw was played out between the sides less than a month ago, and the Reds will look to continue their good unbeaten run against the Blues come full time.

With injuries mounting up, however, Jurgen Klopp will be forced into a few changes for this one. Here’s how we think ​Liverpool will line up:

​He returned to the starting lineup for the win over ​Burnley on New Year’s Day, and Loris Karius should see off Mignolet again here.

DEFENCE:

​Club-record signing Virgil Van Dijk may be given a baptism of fire-esque debut if he is thrown into the fray from the off.

The £75m arrival from ​Southampton would likely partner Joel Matip in the heart of defence, with the pair flanked on either side by Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson with Nathaniel Clyne and Alberto Moreno out through injury.

MIDFIELD:

​With captain Jordan Henderson still sidelined, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be offered another chance to impress from the start in his absence.

Georginio Wijnaldum and Emre Can should play alongside Oxlade-Chamberlain in a centre midfield three, although James Milner could also be tasked with coming into the fold if either of those need a rest.

FORWARDS:

​Klopp was dealt a massive blow ahead of this match with the news that Philippe Coutinho has joined Mohamed Salah on the treatment table.

However, the German still has plenty of attacking quality available to him in the form of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana – a trio who should be able to cause ​Everton problems without their talismanic duo.
