Everton host fierce city rivals Liverpool on Saturday lunchtime in the early kick-off. The Toffees will have seen what Jürgen Klopp‘s men did to Manchester City on Wednesday in the Champions League, and will know how much of a threat they pose going forward.

Sam Allardyce will know that anything can happen in a derby and that form goes out of the window, however he will need an incredible effort from his men here.

Our unique algorithm has predicted the Everton side it believes will start the game.

Football Whispers uses data to predict teams’ starting XIs, taking into account injuries, suspensions, the statistical likelihood of a player being selected, the competition the match is in, players’ previous performances and the opponent’s style.
