EVE vs LIV Dream11 Prediction: Liverpool will hope to get back to winning ways when they travel to Goodison Park to take on high-flyers Everton in the first Merseyside Derby of the season. For the first time in a long time, the winner of the Merseyside Derby is a tough one to call. Everton come into the game unbeaten and in the form of their life, whilst the champions come off the back of an embarrassing 7-2 demolition from a high-flying Aston Villa. The Villa defeat, however, should not be blown out of proportion, a bad day at the office, yes, but this gives Liverpool an additional incentive and it can be expected to see Klopp’s men come into this game with a vengeance. This isn’t to say Everton won’t put up a fight, and they clearly have the quality to do so, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin scoring goals for fun and the creative genius in James Rodriguez aiding him in the process. He managed to continue adding to his goal tally for England this week, so expect Calvert-Lewin to find his seventh of the season but it would be a surprise to see him being the lone scorer throughout the full 90 minutes.

Liverpool Team News
It would be fair to say that Liverpool have not managed to carry on the momentum from last season into the new campaign, which was visible on the first gameweek itself as they took on newcomers Leeds United at the Anfield. Marcelo Bielsa’s side hit three past the Red’s defence but returned home with no points to show for it. That game, however, showed multiple warning signs for Jurgen Klopp. Before the international break, their weaknesses were exploited to its core by none other than Aston Villa who scored seven.
Injury update, unavailability
Naby Keita, who started the game against Aston Villa is unavailable due to an injury he picked in training and will join Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alisson on the sidelines.
LIV Playing 11 & Subs (probable)
Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Firmino, Mane
