Liverpool start as favourites as we look at the predicted starting 11 and key match details for Liverpool vs Everton match from EPL 2022-23.
It’s time for longest running derby of English top-flight football. Yes, we are talking about the Merseyside derby. A premier league encounter that has seen more red cards than any other fixture. From the neutral perspective, the fixture may have lost its shine in the last decade or so with Liverpool dominating the encounter most of the times.
For fans of both the clubs, it’s not just a matter of 3 points. It’s a medium to show their dominance and superiority over their counterparts for the next few weeks. When Anfield erupted on Wednesday night by the injury-time winner of Fabio Carvalho, surely roars were heard at Goodison Park which is located less than a mile from Anfield.
Liverpool are coming into this match after back-to-back wins against Bournemouth and Newcastle United. If the win against Cherries was a smooth drive like Ferrari where they matched the best result of the premier league era of 9-0, the win against Magpies was a bumpy ride that could have gone either way.
Everton are still looking for the first win of the season after 2 losses and 3 draws. They are currently placed in 17th place and it looks like they will fight the relegation battle for the majority of the season just like the last one. After losing their most prolific player Richarlison to Spurs road seems to be tough for them.
A rivalry that is more than 125 years old, and since the inception of Liverpool. Teams who played their first ever home encounter on the same ground have a long decorated derby history. But to get a recent picture we will look at the premier league era only where Everton always remained under the shadow of the Reds. Out of 30 premier league seasons, Toffees finished over Liverpool only on 3 occasions.

Predicting Starting 11 for both Teams
EPL 2022-23: Liverpool vs Everton Predicted Starting 11 for Liverpool
Liverpool played their previous match on Wednesday night and player fatigue might be an issue. Though they don’t have to travel too far for away fixture, still less than 3 days of recovery time is asking too much from the players. So we may expect a few changes in the starting 11.
Darwin has served his three-match suspension, and will be a sure starter which will provide some breather to in-form Firmino. Also, Matip and Jones are coming from injury and we can expect Matip to start the game along with Van Dijk. Meanwhile, Jordan Henderson could miss this match on account of injury.
Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker
Defence: Andy Robertson, Virgil Van Dijk, Joel Matip, Trent Alexander-Arnold
Midfield: James Milner, Fabinho, Harvey Elliot
Attack: Luiz Diaz, Darwin Nunez, Mohamed Salah
EPL 2022-23: Liverpool vs Everton Predicted Starting 11 for Everton
Everton has got one day extra for recovery as they played their last match on Tuesday night. Looking at the ball possession of Everton in most of the recent matches, it looks like they will play the waiting game and will rely on a counterattack strategy. Frank Lampard didn’t use any substitute against Leeds which shows limited options available to him, and still, time is required for new signings like Maupay to adjust to his game plan.
Goalkeeper: Jordan Pickford
Defence: Vitalii Mykolenko, James Tarkowski, Conor Coady, Nathan Patterson
Midfield: Alexander Iwobi, Amadou Onana, Tom Davies
Attack: Anthony Gordon, Demarai Gray, Dwight McNeil
EPL 2022-23: Liverpool vs Bournemouth Fantasy Playing 11
Again, we will go with the same strategy to have the maximum quota of 7 Liverpool players in fantasy 11. Everton are struggling to find the back of the net with only 4 goals in 5 outings in PL. They have not scored more than once in any encounter this season. So, we expect Liverpool’s clean sheet.
We will start with both Alisson and Virgil Van Dijk. Robertson and Arnold select themselves as they can generate assists from nothing situations. We can’t ignore Liverpool’s front three, so Luiz Diaz, Darwin, and Salah take the remaining three places from Liverpool.
Our four picks from Everton include Conor Coady, who is a threat during corners apart from defensive skills. Tom Davies and Alexander Iwobi with their pace may test the high-line defense of the reds. Among the Everton strikers, we have picked Anthony Rondon as he will like to see his name one more time on the scoresheet just like Tuesday night.
Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker
Defenders: Trent Alexander Arnold, Andy Robertson, Virgil Van Dijk, Conor Coady
Midfielders: Luis Diaz, Alexander Iwobi, Tom Davies
Forwards: Mohamed Salah, Darwin, Anthony Gordon
CVC Choice: Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz
