Everton vs Liverpool combined XI: Is Merseyside Red or Blue?

This weekend sees the arrival of the first Merseyside derby of the campaign, with both sides still looking to get themselves out of second gear.

Below, we put together a combined XI of both team’s current stars, giving an insight into which side has the better overall squad.


GK: Tim Howard – Everton

The American may not be as influential as he once was, but he’s still a safer option than the erratic Simon Mignolet.

RB: Seamus Coleman – Everton

A hamstring injury may keep him out of this particular fixture, but the Irish international is more settled than Nathaniel Clyne at the moment.

CB: John Stones – Everton

One of the best young defenders in the Premier League, and his handling of a failed summer move to Chelsea is a credit to both him mentality and his professionalism.

CB: Phil Jagielka – Everton

Despite his advancing years, he’s still better than anyone Liverpool can boast at the back.


LB: Leighton Baines – Everton

There’s a sense that Baines hasn’t made the most of his talent throughout his career, but as it stands he’s still a safer bet than rookie Joe Gomez.
