Take a look at the team news and probable line-ups for the Merseyside derby.

Everton team news

Skipper Phil Jagielka will miss the game as he was sent off late on in the victory over Arsenal, meaning that he will serve a one-match suspension. Meanwhile, Yannick Bolasie and Muhamed Besic are both out with long-term knee injuries. Youngster Matthew Pennington will also miss out with a hamstring injury.

Liverpool team news

The Reds are hoping that Joel Matip (ankle), Emre Can (knee) and Daniel Sturridge (calf) will be fit for the clash against their local rivals, but Matip is the only one likely to start.
