Best XI of players fighting for Premier League safety like Richarlison and Raphinha who could be poached in summer

THE Premier League trapdoor will open for one more team to join Watford and Norwich this weekend.

One of Everton, Leeds or Burnley will be playing Championship football next season.

Frank Lampard looked like he had turned it around with the Toffees, but a 3-2 home defeat to Brentford leaves them in big danger.

Leeds rescued a point at home to Brighton and managed to move out of the bottom three.

That was at the expense of Burnley, who fell to a 1-0 defeat at Tottenham.

And when combined together, those teams could put out a fearsome XI which would not only comfortably beat the drop, but would also challenge for a European finish.

There are plenty of good options in goal, but Everton goalie and England no1 Jordan Pickford gets the nod between the sticks.

At right-back, Seamus Coleman would give his heart and soul for the cause..

His Toffees team-mate and Colombia international Yery Mina, when not injured, would bring a touch of class to proceedings.

The other centre-back spot would have to go to Burnley’s James Tarkowski, a criminally underrated player.

And Leeds ace Stuart Dallas is the pick of the bunch to slot in at left-back – sadly he is missing at the moment after breaking his leg.

As for midfield, Elland Road pal Kalvin Phillips is a shoe-in, with Everton battler Abdoulaye Doucoure alongside.

Leeds’ Brazil international Raphinha is a sure-fire pick for the right wing, with Everton’s Richarlison heading to the left, his more favoured position

That just leaves the centre-forward positions available.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin has missed much of the season with injury, which has certainly affected Everton.
