Everton continue their fine performances under the guidance of Marco Silva with a narrow victory over Cardiff City on Saturday.
Gylfi Sigurdsson scored the only goal of the game to ensure all three points stayed at Goodison Park, extending the club’s recent run of form to just one defeat in the past seven Premier League matches.
A stern test lies ahead this weekend as the Toffees make the short trip across the city to tackle arch-rivals Liverpool, a game where Everton are ranked as the underdogs with Jurgen Klopp’s side yet to taste defeat in the league this season.
Everton have not won at Anfield this side of the millennium and Silva’s tactical decisions for the game must be perfect if the long wait for victory on Liverpool soil is to end – and many fans on social media have made it clear they want Ademola Lookman to start.
We have gathered some of their comments below.
Lookman HAS TO start in the Derby. No question about it. #Everton

Lookman needs to start against Liverpool. He’ll have Robertson in his pocket him… Bernard and Walcott both done nothing again
