Line-up vs Everton

Roy Hodgson names an attacking line-up for this afternoon’s Merseyside against Everton at Goodison Park.

Glen Johnson isn’t in the squad today, and there’s no place for Christian Poulsen either.

Dirk Kuyt’s ankle problem sees him miss the clash, a fixture he has a good record in.

Fernando Torres starts after recovering from an aductor injury picked up on the Reds’ 2-1 defeat to Blackpool two weeks ago.

New owners John Henry and NESV are both in attendance at the game.

Kick-off at Goodison is 1.30pm and it’s live on Sky Sports. Check our forums for live streams.
