Everton predicted starting XI: three changes and new Alex Iwobi role vs Liverpool

Everton take on Liverpool in the 240th Merseyside derby at Anfield.

Everton have a huge task on their hands when they face Liverpool in the Merseyside derby at Anfield (16.30).

The Toffees head across Stanley Park firmly in a Premier League relegation scrap.

As things stand, they’re just a point above the bottom three - but could be in the drop zone by kick-off should Burnley avoid defeat against Wolves.

However, Frank Lampard’s side have gone two league games unbeaten for the first time since October after a last-gasp 1-1 draw against Leicester City earlier this week.

The Everton boss has admitted he’d take a draw ahead of the clash given the size of the task.

Still, not only would a result help the Toffees in their survival battle - but help prevent Liverpool from keeping up with Manchester City in the title race.
