Picking the Best Potential Everton Lineup to Face Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday

Everton will make the short trip across Liverpool on Sunday afternoon as they look for their first win at Anfield since the turn of the millennium.


Marco Silva's side go into Sunday's tie on the back of an impressive run in the Premier League. They have lost just once in their last seven league games, winning five of those ties. However, the Toffees still find themselves 11 points behind their undefeated local rivals and will be desperate for that hefty gap not to grow any larger come Sunday evening.


Silva has made very few adjustments to his side this season. After the Portuguese boss fielded the same XI in their last two fixtures, he is likely to trust the same 11 again for Sunday's derby.


Here's a look at how they could line up.

3. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Jordan Pickford (GK) - The charismatic World Cup semi finalist has generally performed well this season, but will be disappointed at his side's permeable defence. The clean sheet he kept at Chelsea three weeks ago was his first away from Goodison Park this year and he will be faced with the unenviable task of keeping out Liverpool's free-flowing attack on Sunday.


Seamus Coleman (RB) - Coleman is now into his eighth season in Everton colours and remains a key component in Silva's team. The Republic of Ireland international suffered a foot injury earlier in the season which kept him sidelined for four games, and his absence was clearly felt. 


Michael Keane (CB) - Keane made his 50th appearance for the Toffees last time out in their 1-0 win over Cardiff. The 25-year-old has helped his side keep four clean sheets this season and will be desperate to notch a fifth on Sunday.


Yerry Mina (CB) - Since signing from Barcelona in the summer, the Colombian's career has been ravaged by injury, meaning he has only appeared three times in the Premier League for Marco Silva's side. However, Everton are yet to concede a goal when Mina has started in their backline and the Colombian could be the key to keeping Liverpool at bay this weekend.


Lucas Digne (LB) - Digne also relocated from the sunny shores of Barcelona to the banks of the Mersey this year and has quickly settled in at his new surroundings. The France international has featured in 11 Premier League games since joining Everton and has not missed a minute of league football since being substituted against Huddersfield.

2. Midfielders

Andre Gomes (CM) - The third of Everton's ex-Barcelona brigade, Gomes made his Premier League debut in last month's win over Crystal Palace after missing the first eight games through injury.


Idrissa Gueye (CM) - The industrious midfielder will do battle with his compatriot Saido Mane in Sunday's clash as they tussle for Merseyside bragging rights. The former Villa man has already been on the end of a Liverpool thrashing in his career, as he played all 90 minutes of Liverpool's 6-0 demolition of Aston Villa three seasons ago.


Theo Walcott (RM) - The ex-Arsenal winger scored twice against Sunday's opponents during his lengthy stay at the Emirates. Walcott has appeared in every Premier League game this season and will be looking to score his third league goal of the campaign on Sunday.


Gylfi Sigurdsson (CAM) - Sigurdsson is undoubtedly the key man in Silva's midfield. Everton's record signing has scored six league goals already this term; more than any other central midfielder. The Icelandic technician scored two goals against Liverpool during his tenure at Swansea, both of which came  at Anfield.


Bernard (LM) - Since signing for the Toffees from Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer, Bernard has struggled to find any consistency on the Everton flanks. He has only played a full 90 minutes once this season and is regularly substituted before the final whistle.

1. Forward

Richarlison (ST) - Only Sigurdsson has scored more goals for Everton this season than the Brazilian forward, who has impressed the Goodison faithful. The 21-year-old has already surpassed last season's personal tally of five Premier League goals as he looks to keep up with the league's most prolific scorers.
