Andrew Robertson is a major doubt for Liverpool having sustained a shoulder injury on international duty with Scotland.
There is a real chance at least one of their South American players will return on the bench here following their respective flights back.
It’s probable Everton will name an unchanged XI following a rare Goodison Park win.
Idrissa Gueye and Beto as a result will likely have to make do with a spot on the bench.
Expected starting XI’s
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Gravenberch, Endo, Szoboszlai; Salah, Diaz, Jota
Everton (4-5-1): Pickford; Young, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Mykolenko; Harrison, Garner, Onana, Doucoure, McNeil; Calvert-Lewin
Hard to look past a comfortable win for the home side here
Correct Score: 3-1
Liverpool have been shaky defensively this campaign and I can see both teams scoring
Anytime Goalscorer: Mohamed Salah
Salah has five goals in nine games against Liverpool’s city rivals
