The line-ups are in ahead of the Premier League fixture between Liverpool and Everton at Anfield…

After Tuesday’s dramatic penalty shootout victory over Middlesbrough in the Capital One Cup, Kop boss Brendan Rodgers reverts to a team more reminiscent of the one which lost to West Ham United in the league last weekend.

Martin Skrtel, Dejan Lovren, Alberto Moreno, Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson and Mario Balotelli all return to the starting eleven.

Philippe Coutinho is amongst the substitutes after injury but Daniel Sturridge remains sidelined.

The visitors are without first choice right-back Seamus Coleman and hand a Merseyside Derby debut to Bosnian international Muhamed Besic.
