Everton vs Liverpool: Preview, Team News & Predicted Score

By on September 30, 2011

Liverpool take on arch rivals Everton as both sides try to put one over each other in the Merseyside derby come this Saturday at Goodison Park.

Team News

Big clashes normally mean big decisions, and it seems that Liverpool FC are set to bench Steven Gerrard for this encounter, with Kenny Dalglish preferring to ease the captain slowly back into the squad. This paves the way for Jordan Henderson to make yet another start for Liverpool this season.

Glen Johnson (hamstring) and Agger (rib) are both out of this encounter, whilst Tim Cahill is highly doubtful to play a part in this game, with his shin injury causing him to miss training all week, although he has been named in the provisional squad for the Merseyside derby this weekend. Louis Saha might also make his comeback against the Reds this Saturday.

Key Stats

Lucas Leiva was the Liverpool player to cover the most ground (11,900m/7.39miles) during the game against Wolves, closely followed by Charlie Adam (11,637m/7.23miles) and Stewart Downing (10,636m/6.61miles)
