Derby buildup to the big game!
It’s one of the biggest fixtures on the Premier League calendar.
Liverpool, where football is so much, it’s always a big deal when the two biggest clubs in the city collide, and that occasion arises again on Saturday.
The Reds have had the upper hand in these games over recent years, in face, Everton haven’t managed to win at Anfield since 1998, but this season, Everton have improved vastly under Roberto Martinez, and their squad is getting stronger.
Here, our task is to produce a combined starting XI for the two teams, which is a difficult task with the calibre of player in both squads.
Do you agree with our team? Take a look!
GK) Simon Mignolet – Liverpool
It’s a case of choosing from a bad bunch here, and Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet has redeemed himself between the sticks this season. He has always been a good shot stopper, and his stats saving penalties are what puts him into this team ahead of Martin Stekelenberg, Joel Robles and Loris Karius.
