Sky Sport have drawn up a playing XI from the Liverpool and Everton sides ahead of the much anticipated Merseyside Derby this weekend. Not a mere fantasy line-up as the players had been selected by Sky Sports analysts on the basis of who had the best stats this season across no less than 32 different areas!
While Everton dominated defence with three picks including keeper Joel Robles, Liverpool’s vaunted attacking line-up of Mane, Lallana and Firmino represented the Reds with Jordan Henderson and Ross Barkely in midfield and Romelu Lukaku up top, who is still in with a great chance of picking up the Golden Boot. The team Chemistry certainly would have been all over the place one would assume.
The Anfield side took the honours with six players to Everton’s five and we’re expecting another close battle this Saturday as the old rivals take to the pitch.
