Liverpool - Everton Preview: Moyes looking for his first-ever win at Anfield

Local bragging rights appear to be the best for which either side can hope for this season and the Toffees can secure Merseyside superiority for another year with a win

  PROBABLE LINEUPS

LIVERPOOL

Reina
Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Enrique
Gerrard, Lucas, Henderson
Downing, Sturridge, Coutinho
EVERTON

Howard
Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines
Mirallas, Fellaini, Osman, Pienaar
Anichebe
Jelavic

After Fabio Borini came off the bench to score against Newcastle after missing eight weeks with a dislocated shoulder, Joe Allen (shoulder) and Martin Kelly (knee) are the only long-term absentees for Liverpool.

Raheem Sterling (hip) is approaching full fitness and could be in contention for Brendan Rodgers.

Tony Hibbert returned to Everton the squad for Saturday's win over Fulham but may have to make do with a place on the bench yet again as Seamus Coleman continues at right-back.

Darron Gibson (hip) is David Moyes's only injury concern, with Ross Barkley set to compete with Nikica Jelavic for a place alongside Victor Anichebe in attack.

Liverpool fans feeling despondent about losing the suspended Luis Suarez for 10 games will have perked up considerably after watching Coutinho's performance in the rout over Newcastle. The silky Brazilian simply ran the show at St James' Park, causing the opposition defence nightmares with his nimble footwork and unerring eye for a killer pass. The 20-year-old looks more than capable of filling the creative void left by Suarez's absence but may be in for a shock in the blood and thunder of his first Merseyside derby.

The towering Belgian has played a key role in most of his side's big games this season, scoring against Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal, while laying on many more opportunities for his team mates. The former Standard Liege midfielder is perfectly suited to this fixture's physical nature and will be charged with neutralising Liverpool's flair players as well as offering a threat at set pieces.
Prediction
Recent showdowns between these sides have been entertaining affairs and Liverpool's poor defensive record in big games this season suggest that this one will not be any different.
