Liverpool FC Starting XI Prediction vs Everton (FA Cup 3rd Round)

Share

merseyside derby liverpool everton

Liverpool FC are tied for fifth all time in FA Cup titles won, but they haven’t raised this specific piece of silverware since 2006. They are also tied for third all time in runners-up appearances, so the Reds are no strangers to making deep runs in this tournament.

While they are basically invincible in form right now (more or less), there is one manager who has beaten them this season- Carlo Ancelotti. He was with Napoli then, in the autumn, but as he leads Everton into this one he outlined the keys to taking down Goliath; uh sort of.

“Score more goals,” he said playfully.

“Jurgen is my friend, we have a good relationship and I had the luck to beat him last season as well, although they won the competition.”

“At Napoli it was the same, we were able to do a great performance because to beat Liverpool you have to do a great performance, a normal performance is not enough.
