While Everton have found some form in recent weeks, Liverpool’s troubles continue to unravel.
Brendan Rodgers remains firmly under the microscope at Anfield – a 1-1 home draw with Sion in the Europa League on Thursday night did little to relieve the pressure – and there are reports that the Reds boss could be fired if Liverpool lose to their city rivals.
Last season, this match finished 0-0.
As to the team sheets, Daniel Sturridge starts in attack for Liverpool alongside Danny Ings, while Christian Bentekke is out with an injury.
Everton are unchanged from team that won at West Brom, as John Stones and Seamus Coleman are still out injured.
