The right-back returns in one of the biggest matches of the season.
It’s the first Merseyside derby of the year at Anfield as Liverpool host fierce rivals Everton and the visitors have surprisingly named Tony Hibbert in their starting XI.
The 33-year-old has fallen out of favour at Goodison Park in recent times and this is only his second Premier League appearance in the past two years.
As expected Hibbert is trending on Twitter and here are the best and funniest of the tweets concerning the right-back.
I thought Tony Hibbert had gone extinct lol.

If our tactics aren’t “just skin Tony Hibbert all day”, something’s gone wrong.

Reminder that Tony Hibbert is *that* bloke smoking outside a church before a wedding in an ill-fitting grey suit. Collar & tie loosened.
