Team News

Everton will nervously await Tim Cahill's late fitness test as he sustained a bruised shin against Manchester City last week. Victor Anichebe, who is out for the long term, is their only other injury worry.

For Liverpool, skipper Steven Gerrard is likely to play a part, having recovered from a long-standing injury, but will start from the bench. Meanwhile, Daniel Agger suffered a broken rib last week and is sidelined, although he returned to training. Glen Johnson is also sidelined with injury.
