Read more Liverpool transfer news.
GK: Simon Mignolet
The Belgium international has been one of manager Brendan Rodgers’s better signings from the summer, starting in every single Premier League game to date, and you get the feeling he will need another big match in goal at Anfield if the Reds are going to win this contest.
RB: Martin Kelly
In the injury-enforced absence of first-choice right-back Glen Johnson, Rodgers went with the England international in his place against Bournemouth in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday, and the Northern Irishman is likely to stick with the young full back against the Toffees.
CB: Kolo Toure
Untimely injuries to the likes of both central defenders Daniel Agger and Mamadou Sakho means that the experienced Ivorian will now keep his place at the heart of the Reds back four when Everton come to town on Tuesday night.
CB: Martin Skrtel
Without a shadow of a doubt, Liverpool’s best defender so far this season, with the rugged and shaven-headed Slovakia international skipper an absolute rock at the back for the Merseysiders throughout this campaign to date.
LB: Aly Cissokho
The on-loan Frenchman has not been convincing at all since he joined the club from La Liga outfit Valencia on a season-long loan deal last summer, and there is no doubt that the visitors will be targeting the left-hand side of the Liverpool back four at Anfield on Tuesday evening.
