It was yet another win to add to the collection on Thursday, as Jurgen Klopp‘s side eased their way to a serene 2-0 win over Sheffield United at Anfield.
It means Liverpool have still dropped just two points this season – a statistic that is almost impossible to comprehend.
The Blues will fancy their chances of finally ending their 20-year wait for a win at Anfield, with Carlo Ancelotti making a flying start as manager.
Here’s how we think Liverpool could line-up at Anfield on Sunday.
The Reds’ injury problems are starting to mount up, even though rival supporters like to suggest otherwise, meaning vast changes are certainly on the cards on Sunday.
Fabinho is back running, however, so his return is edging closer all the time.
Xherdan Shaqiri is also expected to miss out on Sunday through a thigh injury – a shame, considering he would likely have started the game.
Liverpool’s Starting XI vs. Everton
Klopp has a dilemma on his hands, with the magnitude of a Merseyside derby undeniable.
The Liverpool boss has stated that he won’t allow his emotions to take over, though, suggesting he will rest numerous key men on Sunday.
He did the same in the league fixture last month, which didn’t pan out too badly.
Curtis Jones feels a shoo-in to start in the middle of the park, but perhaps most exciting is a debut for Minamino.
Liverpool’s new signing watched from the stands against Sheffield United, but this an ideal chance to hand him his Reds bow.
Brewster is expected to leave on loan after the game – he would love to sign off in style before a move to the Championship:
Adrian; Williams, Hoever, Phillips, Milner; Lallana, Jones, Minamino; Elliott, Brewster, Origi
There are some supporters who will be left disgruntled by such a huge amount of changes, though, considering the opposition.
Any defeat to Everton hurts and Klopp will be criticised if a weakened team is beaten, regardless of his many achievements as Liverpool boss.
There is the option of picking a few senior figures, considering Liverpool don’t play again until a week on Saturday, away to Tottenham.
Van Dijk is as undroppable as they come and Klopp may feel his vast experience is key alongside someone of Phillips’ lack of maturity.
Similarly, Robertson is fit enough to start yet another game, which would then push the evergreen Milner into the midfield.
Lallana and Jones are almost definite to start, and with Milner joining them in the middle of the park, Minamino can display his versatility further forward.
The Japan international is capable of thriving in a front-three and adopting a left-sided berth could get the best out of him.
He could easily play on the right, though, with Elliott or Origi on the opposite flank and Brewster leading the line:
Adrian; Williams, Phillips, Van Dijk, Robertson; Lallana, Milner, Jones; Elliott, Minamino, Origi
It will be fascinating to see what team Klopp goes with – given his starting lineup against Everton in the league, anything feels possible.
The boss has merited Liverpool supporters’ complete trust, so his lineup should be judged after the final whistle, not before it.
