When and Where: The Merseyside derby kicks off from Anfield at 4 p.m. ET. The match will be screened on ESPN2, with a live stream available on ESPN3.

Preview: Rather than chasing a Champions League place, after three successive Premier League defeats, Liverpool go into the Merseyside Derby looking over their shoulders at neighbors Everton.

A 1-0 defeat to Sunderland at the weekend leaves Liverpool just three points ahead of Everton, while they'll kick off on Tuesday a massive 13 points behind fourth-place Arsenal.

Once again, Liverpool's latest loss showed up their inability to turn their dominance in possession into registering on the score sheet. A paltry 30 goals scored in the league this campaign, far lower than any team above them, speaks volumes about the difficulties the Reds have endured.

In contrast to their near-rivals, the Toffees have been in a rich vein of form and have not tasted defeat in their last nine outings.

A victory on Tuesday would be the perfect anniversary gift for Everton boss David Moyes who will be celebrating 10 years in charge the following day.

Given the sharp contrast in their expenditures this season, simply the fact that Everton go into the game with the chance of surpassing Liverpool speaks volumes for Moyes' management acumen again this season.

Yet, despite the difference in form of the two sides, Moyes will certainly not become over-confident going into the game at Anfield. The Everton boss has yet to taste victory at Liverpool's illustrious home in his long tenure at Everton.

Team News:  After Saturday's listless display, Dalglish could well ring the changes against Everton. Steven Gerrard looks almost certain to come back into the midfield, while fellow Merseyside native Jamie Carragher could also return to the side in place of Sebastian Coates at the back. Stewart Downing may also get a start, possibly in place of Craig Bellamy.

In contrast to Liverpool, Everton boss Moyes will be loathed to change a lineup that performed admirably in defeating Tottenham on Saturday. That could mean that defender Phil Jagielka is again named among the substitutes. Moyes may possibly bring Steven Pienaar, ineligible against Spurs, back in place of the talented, but unpredictable, Royston Drenthe.

Prediction: At the very least Dalglish should be able to get his players to display more energy in this local derby. But Everton will go to Anfield on a high, knowing that they have rarely had a better chance to return from across Stanley Park with all three points.

Derby games are often unpredictable, though, and the Merseyside variety is also frequently more edgy than explosive. Couple that with both sides' inability to find the back of the net on a regular basis this season and this contest could well fizzle out into a bore draw.
