Goal Scorer:

Liverpool fans have been waiting with bated breath to hear the latest updates on Andy Robertson, who is believed to have suffered a dislocated shoulder in Scotland's Euro 2024 qualifying defeat to Spain last week, although an official diagnosis is yet to arrive.

Nevertheless, Kostas Tsimikas is set to deputise for the derby at least, and Klopp's ravaged midfield will remain without Thiago Alcantara (hip) and the suspended Curtis Jones, while Stefan Bajcetic's calf problem might heal in time for the Spaniard to make the bench.

Second-choice stopper Caoimhin Kelleher (knee) is also sidelined, while attacking duo Cody Gakpo (knee) and Ben Doak (unspecified) will need once-overs in the coming hours, but Diogo Jota is back from a one-game suspension.

The Portugal international will no doubt come into Klopp's thinking for a start given Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz's long journeys home from South America - one can be sure that the Reds boss will not be best pleased with the 12.30pm kickoff - but unless Gakpo makes a rapid recovery, Klopp may have little choice but to deploy Nunez up top.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Gravenberch, Mac Allister, Szoboszlai; Salah, Nunez, Jota

Meanwhile, there has been little movement in the Everton infirmary over the international break, as Seamus Coleman (knee) and Dele Alli (groin) are still working their way back to full fitness, while Andre Gomes (calf) is uncertain at the time of writing.

Idrissa Gueye was due to start against Bournemouth two weeks ago, but a heel injury in the warm-up led to Garner being drafted in to a midfield role, and the ex-Manchester United man gave Dyche the best kind of selection headache with a stellar performance.

Gueye was able to represent Senegal during the international break, but Dyche may see no reason to alter his most recent winning XI, which would also see Dominic Calvert-Lewin beat Beto to the number nine spot.
Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Young, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Mykolenko; Harrison, Onana, Garner, McNeil; Doucoure; Calvert-Lewin
Prediction: Liverpool 3-1 Everton
