Everton and Liverpool star in a new Merseyside derby this Saturday and with emergencies from both teams. Frank Lampard’s men are fourth from bottom, tied with Wolves and Aston Villa, both in the relegation zone. Those of Jürgen Klopp, sixth, 7 behind the leader, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, and 5 behind Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
In the ranks of Liverpool, Uruguayan striker Darwin Núñez returns to the list after his suspensionreceived as a result of the header he gave Joachim Andersen (Crystal Palace) in the Premier match between the two teams on August 15 (1-1).
At the beginning Darwin Núñez will be on the bench and Jürgen Klopp declared this Friday about the attacker that “he has learned the lesson”. Diogo Jota can reappear after his injuryand the captain, Jordan Henderson, is absent, waiting for the extent of his injury to be known.
After two losses and three draws in the current Premier, Lampard’s Everton still do not know the victory in the English championship 2022-23 and therefore their fans think that there is no better opportunity to achieve the first than this Saturday against the eternal rival citizen, even more so when Liverpool is not making a good start in the tournament.
