Who will win the FA Cup 3rd round match between Liverpool and Everton?
The Reds just brought up the remarkable milestone of going unbeaten in the Premier League for a full year. They will be heavy favourites to progress in this game.
But there will be a major factor in the eventual outcome – the team that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp selects. With the Reds intent on finally getting their hands on the Premier League trophy and facing a Champions League quarter-final against Atletico Madrid next month, Klopp is likely to call on some of his reserves.
Everton have begun to climb the EPL ladder under Ancelotti, moving up to 11th from the fringes of the relegation zone. They would love nothing more than to knock their rivals out of this competition. But with their talented line-up, it's hard to see anything but a Liverpool victory on home turf.
