The one slight surprise is the inclusion of Jamie Carragher in defence, with Daniel Agger coming in at left back. Glen Johnson moves across to right back after his recent return to fitness against Blackburn.
It looks like a three-man midfield of Gerrard, Spearing and Henderson, with Stewart Downing – the man of the match here in the Carling Cup Final – in attack supporting Carroll with Luis Suarez.
Liverpool: Jones; Johnson, Carragher, Skrtel, Agger; Spearing, Henderson, Gerrard; Downing, Suarez, Carroll.
Subs: Gulacsi, Enrique, Maxi, Kuyt, Shelvey, Kelly, Bellamy.
Everton: Howard, Neville, Heitinga, Distin, Baines, Osman, Gibson, Fellaini, Gueye, Cahill, Jelavic.
