Fantasy Football: Merseyside Derby

by Olivia Mannix

A Merseyside Derby is on the horizon and the question on everyone’s lips is; who will come out on top? Taking place at Anfield, the match kicks off at 5.30pm on Saturday. Here are some of the players we’ll be watching out for this weekend. 

Richarlison – EVERTON – Forward, £7.9m

We are poised and ready for Richarlison’s breakout for the Merseyside Derby. The Brazilian has produced plenty of shots this season, and we reckon his attack could be a reliable weapon for Everton.

Sadio Mané – LIVERPOOL – Midfielder, £11.8m

Although he has been overshadowed by teammate Salah, Mané has been a consistent player for his team. We think that a home meeting with Everton will give the Liverpool forward a chance to show off and improve his form.

Lucas Digne – EVERTON – Defender, £6.1m

After a successful start to the season, Digne was soon flawed by injury. However, his return has been sweet thanks to a change in role. The Frenchman has settled back into his team and we reckon he will continue to show off his skills this week.

Andrew Robertson – LIVERPOOL – Defender, £7.3m

Liverpool’s left-back has been looking more dangerous than ever and his attacking potential has really risen to the surface over the past few weeks. This week Liverpool will definitely be relying on Robertson for more returns.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin – EVERTON – Forward, £7.7m

The Everton forward has been one of the most consistent players of the season, but injury has taken Calvert-Lewin off the pitch. Will he be back this week, or will we be waiting a little longer for his return?

Who have you put in your team this week?
