Everton ace Seamus Coleman could get a taste of his own medicine against Andrew Robertson

Everton flyer Seamus Coleman is a right-back that has made a career out of his adventurous runs forward and has always been a great attacking outlet at Goodison Park.

The 30-year-old has been captaining the Toffees this season and remains an important player in Marco Silva’s squad.

Everton travel to Liverpool on Sunday for the Merseyside clash and Coleman could well get a taste of his own medicine.

The Republic of Ireland international frequently makes trademark overlapping runs down the flank, which often leaves the opposition’s left-back in a tricky position.

 

Coleman may well be on the end of that scenario from a defensive point, as Liverpool are expected to dominate possession at Anfield and they will have the impressive Andrew Robertson bombing forward from left-back.

Robertson, 24, has enjoyed a meteoric rise in recent times with the Reds and is now regarded as one of the best full-backs in the division.

The Scotsman already has five assist across all competitions this campaign and is a major attacking threat with his drives forward.

Coleman is going to have some sizeable task defending against a left flank of Robertson and winger Sadio Mane, which is why he is going to need help with an extra man.

It will be interesting to see if the Everton ace can cause problems going the other way on the counter attack, but he can expect his back against the wall for spells in the contest.
