Confirmed line-ups for Liverpool vs Everton in the first Merseyside derby of the 2014-15 Premier League season at Anfield.
Liverpool and Everton have confirmed their lineups for today’s Merseyside Derby, with Reds’ key playmaker Philippe Coutinho only on the bench at Anfield.
Youngster Lazar Markovic gets the nod instead, while Brendan Rodgers has named an otherwise expected team for this big grudge match, with big names such as Mario Balotelli and Raheem Sterling in attack, and Steven Gerrard and Jordan Henderson behind them in midfield.
Everton start summer signing Romelu Lukaku in attack, with other big names such as Samuel Eto’o and Leon Osman among the substitutes for Roberto Martinez as they chase a first win at their neighbours’ ground for 15 years.
