'Will get torn apart' – Everton fans fume as Allardyce starts 28-year-old v Liverpool

Everton fans are fearing the worst after manager Sam Allardyce’s decision to start defender Cuco Martina for the Premier League clash with rivals Liverpool.

The Toffees travel to Anfield for the Merseyside derby of the Premier League season on Sunday afternoon, with both sides in good form.

Martina will be up against the likes of Liverpool attackers Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, who are both in sensational form.

The 28-year-old has made just seven Premier League appearances for Everton this season and Toffees fans were left fearing the worst after hearing about the decision.

Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the best tweets from concerned Everton fans ahead of the 2.15pm kick-off.

It is Allardyce’s third game in charge of the Toffees with his new side hitting a spot of good form at just the right time, keeping clean sheets in each of their last three matches.

The Toffees recorded back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time this season, over West Ham United and newly-promoted Huddersfield Town. This was followed by an impressive 3-0 win against Apollon Limassol in the Europa League on Thursday.

However, Everton have a poor record an Anfield and face a free-scoring Liverpool side who have hit 15 goals in their past three outings, including an emphatic 7-0  victory over Spartak Moscow in the Champions League in midweek.

Toffees fans will be able to take confidence from the fact that Allardyce was the last manager to beat Liverpool at Anfield, when he achieved a 2-1 victory with Crystal Palace at the end of last season.

In other Everton news, the Toffees are eyeing a move for this Barcelona striker, according to a report.
