Liverpool vs Everton live streaming
Liverpool would be welcoming their Merseyside neighbour Everton for the 228th Merseyside derby at Anfield.
Both teams have lost some key players during the international break. Everton has lost Coleman who is expected to be out for nearly a year. Also, Funes Mori is out injured after withdrawn from Argentina vs Bolivia game due to the knee injury. Koeman would be expecting to partner the experienced central defenders Williams and Jagielka. It’ll be interesting to see whether Koeman opts for youngster Holgate for the right back position or not. Alternatively, he would use Barry as right back just like Milner has been used as left back for Liverpool.James McCarthy is doubtful for this game as he already missed Ireland games due to injury.Morgan Schneiderlin has been ruled out due to the calf injury. Bolasie and Besic are ruled for this fixture as well. Everton fans would be hoping that Lukaku continues his goal scoring form as he has been the top scorer in the league. Despite rejecting the contract, K-man would be making him start along with Barkley and both need to deliver if they are to win their first game at Anfield since 1999.
Liverpool lost Adam Lallana during the international break due to the thigh injury. He is expected to miss least five games. Jordan Henderson is a doubt for this game and Klopp would not be expecting to risk him for this game. Sturridge who’s shot helped Liverpool win over Everton at Goodison is expected to return from the injury. However, he might have to satisfy with a place on the bench. Coutinho and Firmino took part in the training on Thursday after they were flown back by a private jet. Coutinho might be playing in the midfield with Origi starting up front. Alternatively, Lucas might start in the midfield which would allow Coutinho, Firmino and Mane to start up front.
If Liverpool avoids defeat they will equal their best run of 13 league games without losing to Everton, set in 1978.
Furthermore, Daniel Sturridge will not take part in this encounterThe Reds have lost just one of the previous 20 Merseyside derbies in the Premier League (W10, D9).
Everton’s last victory over their local rivals was in October 2010 – Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta scoring in a 2-0 league win at Goodison Park.
There have been a league-high 21 red cards in this fixture in the Premier League, with seven of the last eight shown to an Everton player.
