Liverpool, who have not won at Goodison Park since 1990, welcome Steve McManaman back. He has been out with an Achilles injury since the defeat at Manchester United on 24 September. Jason McAteer came back from Irish duty with a thigh injury, while American goalkeeper Brad Friedel has a groin problem. The Norwegian full-back Vegard Heggem should replace McAteer, while Tony Warner could be on the substitutes' bench if Friedel fails a fitness test.
