TEAM NEWS: Carroll and Gerrard return to Liverpool starting lineup for Everton derby

The English duo were benched for the recent Premier League defeat to Sunderland at the Stadium of Light but join Luis Suarez and Stewart Downing to form a potent front line.
Andy Carroll and Steven Gerrard return to the Liverpool lineup to face Everton in Tuesday's Merseyside derby.

The duo missed the weekend's 1-0 defeat at the hands of Sunderland but have been chosen by boss Kenny Dalglish to face the Toffees.

Charlie Adam makes way in central midfield while Craig Bellamy fails to make the squad, given his inability to play games in quick succession due to knee problems.

Liverpool starting XI: Reina, Kelly, Enrique, Skrtel, Carra, Spearing, Gerrard, Henderson, Downing, Suarez, Carroll.

Subs: Doni, Shelvey, Maxi, Flanagan, Kuyt, Adam, Coates.

Everton starting XI: Howard; Hibbert, Distin, Jagielka, Baines; Coleman, Fellaini, Pienaar, Rodwell; Stracqualursi, Anichebe.

Subs: Mucha, Heitinga, Jelavic, Drenthe, Cahill, Neville, Osman.
