Confirmed: Everton and Liverpool line-ups

Here is how Everton and Liverpool will line up for this afternoon’s match:

Everton welcome Liverpool to Goodison Park for the latest Merseyside derby, with the Toffees currently three places and one point better off than their fierce rivals.

Everton may currently be enjoying the better season but they have a poor recent record against Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers’ side will be hoping that continues this weekend.

Everton are without a win in their last nine league games against the Reds, but the team Roberto Martinez has now built is more than capable of ending that record in fine style.

Unbeaten in four matches, Everton will have taken plenty of confidence from the way they came back from 2-0 down to beat West Bromwich Albion 3-2 last week, while Liverpool’s last league game was a victory against Aston Villa by the same score-line.

With just one win in their last eight league games away from Anfield, Liverpool have to see an upturn in form but in truth when it comes to these derby matches anything can happen.
