Preview...

Fresh from the international break a depleted Everton attempt to get over Seamus Coleman's recent leg break by trying to claim their first three points at Anfield since 1999.

Ronald Koeman has welcomed his players back with a catalogue of injuries while the Brazilian contingent in Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side have had to face long journeys to get back in time.

What time does it start?

Kick-off is at 12.30pm on Saturday 1st April.

Where can I watch it?

The game will be shown on Sky Sports 1, with all the build up from 11.30am.

It’s a big game for…

Romelu Lukaku. There is a lot of speculation surrounding the Belgian’s future and whether he will remain at Goodison Park next season, with Chelsea sniffing around. He will need to prove to potential buyers that he can perform in the big games and there is no bigger game for Everton than their City rivals.

Remember when

The Reds ran riot at Anfield scoring four goals without reply, in their second 4-0 win over Everton in two years.

Form…

Liverpool: LWLWWD

Everton: WDWLWW

Odds…

Liverpool: 4/6

Everton: 3/1

Draw: 21/5

The prospect of becoming Liverpool's first manager to win his first three Merseyside meetings is on the horizon for Jurgen Klopp. No pressure then...

Liverpool have not lost to their Merseyside rivals at home in over 17 years, but Koeman's Everton side enter the clash with best 2017 form record out of any Premier League side. This fixture remains to be the longest running top flight derby in English football, and what an occasion it is.

Team news coming shortly.

Team news:

Liverpool start without Adam Lallana due to a thigh injury that he picked up on international duty, which will be a huge loss for The Reds. Henderson is also sidelined due to injury, leaving the home side's midfield weakened.

 Everton's Seamus Coleman remains out with a broken leg, alongside Ramiro Funes Mori who is out with a knee injury. Morgan Schneiderlin, James McCarthy and Yannick Bolasie are all missing the derby due to injury.

However, there's no such thing as an excuse on derby day.

Can Liverpool handle the Premier League's top scorer?

In-demand Romelu Lukaku could be the guy to put an end to Liverpool's 18-year unbeaten home record today an Anfield. With 21 goals under his belt so far this season at just 23 years old, he is an incredibly promising prospect as he continues to prove himself to be a striking masterclass. He was rewarded for his sublime run of form by being named Premier League Player of the Month for March.  As expected, a player of such reputation and reliability will attract interest from an array from some of the world's biggest clubs. The Belgian is certainly a target for Chelsea, but will he stick with The Toffees?
