The Merseyside derby this time is much more different from the last time where the Toffees where defeated.
Going away to Anfield is a tricky one but can Ronald Koeman’s men get the result?
The last time both sides met at Goodison Park, Everton came into the game with high hopes having defeated Arsenal the previous week. They were struggling to the get the results before facing the Gunners to get their first victory in six games in the Premier League. Despite the sky-high confidence, Sadio Mane punished them for their lapses.
Everton were only able to create one clear attempt, and the fans booed loudly after the game. Koeman sure learnt some lessons as he has made some changes. The manager used to play the 4-2-3-1 formation. He used Kevin Mirallas, Gerard Deulofeu, Aaron Lennon, and Yannick Bolasie or Enner Valencia in the wings. Now the Dutchman employs an extra leg in the middle.
Koeman gave an unproven youngster Tom Davies the benefit of the doubt and he has repaid the debt with his display. Against Man City, Davies showed something spectacular. He fit right alongside Idrissa Gueye – a player that has made the most tackles this term. Continue reading “EVERTON TO SHOCK LIVERPOOL AT DERBY?”
Everton midfielder Aaron Lennon says that he will not sulk despite losing his place in the first team in recent weeks.
Lennon was brought to the club in the summer of 2015 by former boss Roberto Martinez. However, he has struggled to become a first team regular under the regime of Ronald Koeman. The Dutchman was appointed as the manager of Everton in the summer. Since then, Lennon has been in and out of the starting lineup and it has really affected his form. He has so far not contributed any goals while coming up with only one assist.
After an extended absence from the first team, Lennon finally managed to complete 90 minutes of football in the recent 1-0 loss against Liverpool. This is the first time he has been able to finish a league game. Known for his pace, Lennon would be an ideal candidate to provide strikers like Romelu Lukaku with ammunition.

Former Tottenham midfielder Aaron Lennon sealed a move to Everton on transfer deadline day, but it appeared that the England international was not too happy with the move. In his first pictures as an Everton player, he appeared glum and dull.
This led to a lot of comments as to whether the 27-year-old was not too happy at moving from London to Liverpool. Everton manager Roberto Martinez insisted that this was not the case and that the photographer was to blame for this controversy. He says that it is the job of a photographer to make the subject smile. Having failed to do so, he says that it is time Everton changed their photographer.
Lennon was a Tottenham player since his £ 1 million move in 2005. He has been part of numerous success enjoyed by the club in the last decade, but he has been pushed to a fringe role under the management of Mauricio Pochettino. After having been a regular first-team player as recently as under Tim Sherwood, Lennon was not too happy with his lack of first-team opportunities.
