Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will host Everton at Anfield next month and Jamie Carragher wonders what team the Reds should pick against the Goodison Park side.
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has taken to Twitter to give his thoughts on the FA Cup third round draw, which has put the Reds up against Merseyside rivals Everton.
Jurgen Klopp’s charges will host Marco Silva’s beleaguered side in the first weekend of January, just a month after the two lock horns at Anfield in the Premier League.
Liverpool are currently firing on all cylinders, sitting eight points clear at the top of the Premier League table and impressing on the cup fronts too.
Everton, meanwhile, are in dire straits at present, with Silva under intense pressure at Goodison Park amid what seems to be shaping up to be a relegation battle.
The Reds have tended to play their youngsters in domestic cup competitions in recent years, and Carragher wondered whether they should do the same, given the fact it’s a fiercely contested derby.

Here is what some Reds fans said in response – unsurprisingly, some mocked their rivals by urging Klopp to play up front, or to name the Under-12s:

Liverpool last played Everton in the FA Cup back in the third round just two seasons ago, when Virgil van Dijk headed a late winner on his debut for the Anfield side.
