Full time: Everton 1-1 Liverpool

Six of the last seven Premier League games between these two have been drawn and in truth neither side deserved anything more out of a clash that for so long failed to impress. Everton's wait for a Merseyside derby win goes on while Liverpool have got a much-needed point but they have one win in eight in all competitions heading into the international break.

Well that is all we have time for. we have live coverage of Arsenal v Manchester United and Swansea v Tottenham to come so stay tuned to be across all of the Premier League action.

Both players booked by Martin Atkinson and to be honest neither players deserves much more. There is a coming together in the penalty area, started by the Everton forward it seems which ends with plenty of eyeballing.

Handbags as we approach stoppage time between Lukaku and Sakho. Not clear what has occurred at this stage but the Liverpool defender is fuming.

Liverpool force a corner with less than five minutes left. Is this the moment for the visitors? Coutinho swings in the cross but when it is overhit, Moreno's ball back in finds the gloves of Howard. Heading for a sixth draw in seven meetings between these two.

Entering the last 10 minutes at Goodison Park and neither side really look like getting a late winner here. Joe Allen comes on for Lucas Leiva.

Lukaku in again and his effort to beaten clear by Mignolet. Everton coming again as the game reaches the final 20 minutes.

Ross Barkley gets in behind the Liverpool midfield. He has teammates left and right but he opts to curl goalwards but the ball bounces just wide.

Not much structure to the start of the second half, which has begun very much like the first. It is a bit scrappy and a bit bitty. Liverpool, who conceded at the end of the half, are unlikely to be too worried.

Lukaku gets in behind down the left but his cross is palmed away by Mignolet, with Delofeu storming in at the back post.

Back under way at Goodison Park. No half-time changes.

Half time: Everton 1-1 Liverpool

A half of two halves. The first twenty-two and a half minutes had plenty of sparring but the game has burst into life first after Mingolet kept out Naismith and McCarhty, before Ings and Lukaku exchanged goals at the end of the first half. Exciting second half in prospect.

Goal: Everton 1-1 Liverpool (Romelu Lukaku)

Everton level in the first minute of add-on time. Delofeu's cross is cleared by Emre Can only as far as Lukaku, who brings the ball down and bangs it past Mignolet from close range.

Goal: Everton 0-1 Liverpool (Danny Ings)

One moment he is the villain of the piece and now he puts Liverpool in front. Lambasted by Daniel Sturridge for not passing in the previous move, from the resulting corner Ings - called into the England squad for the first time this week - ghosts into the six yard box unmarked and head easily past Tim Howard. Everton's marking was nonexistent. Ings could not miss

Mignolet to the rescue again for Liverpool and Brendan Galloway gets hold of one which the 'keeper palms away with a fine stop.

There is an immediate reaction reaction from Everton and they produce the best chance of the game. Mignolet turns the ball over the bar from Naismith's header. The Belgian turns the ball over the bar with a stop all about reactions.

Everton have not really figured in the early stages of this game, playing a bit of a bit part as Liverpool move the ball around well. James Milner goes close as Coutinho plays a beautiful chipped pass in behind. Now Sakho heads wide from the resulting corner. Roberto Martinez will not like this start.

Danny Ings with a rasper with flies over the bar. Liverpool have started well here.

Half a chance for Liverpool early on as Daniel Sturridge cuts onto his favoured left food but drags his shot well wide.

Under way at Goodison Park. Breaking news coming out of the Stadium of Light this afternoon as Dick Advocaat resigns as manager. More to follow....

Players out at Goodison Park and we're almost ready to go. This could be a real cracker, with both sides having named attacking line-ups. Updates on the way.

After the started together for the first time last week, how will the unlikely partnership of Daniel Sturridge and Danny Ings get on this afternoon? They immediately hit it off against Aston Villa but how will cope with the intensity of a Merseyside derby? We're minutes away from finding out.

Despite Everton being on a lengthy unbeaten run, they are only on point above Liverpool and would go behind their Merseyside rivals should they lose today. Their recent record is horrid, having won only three of the las 31 derbies in all competitions.

Everton have not won in any of their last nine derby meetings with Liverpool in a horrendous run which Roberto Martinez's men are favourites to end at Goodison Park this weekend. The Reds arrive in the blue half of Merseyside on a horrid run and with Brendan Rodgers facing scrutiny over his position.

Ok, so let's add what meat there is to the bones of that team news, though it is very much as expected from both teams.

Everton are unchanged from the win over West Brom, so Seamus Coleman and John Stones miss out through injury.

Liverpool are also unchanged from their last league win over Aston Villa, with Christian Benteke again missing out while Daniel Sturridge and Danny Ings are partnered in attack.


Everton: Howard, Galloway, Funes M, Jagielka, Browning, Barry, McCarthy, Naismith, Barkley, Deulofeu, Lukaku.

Liverpool: Mignolet, Skrtel, Sakho, Can, Clyne, Moreno, Lucas, Milner, Coutinho, Ings, Sturridge.

For the first time in recent memory, Everton enter a Merseyside derby which they haven't won for five years as favourites to topple their neighbours from across Stanley Park. The 3-2 win over West Bromwich Albion was a stunning example of the Toffee's recent form which has seen them unbeaten in their last six, a run which includes a win over champions Chelsea. For Liverpool, they arrive at Goodison Park with only one win in their last seven games and with Brendan Rodgers' long-term future in serious doubt, though Daniel Sturridge is fit again and back among the goals. Team news ahead of the 225th Merseyside derby on the way.
