Liverpool will take on Everton in the Premier League clash as both sides prepare for the first Merseyside derby of the season at Anfield on Saturday.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 12:45pm BST. Live coverage is on BT Sport 1. Radio commentary will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live. Catch the highlights of the match on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:30pm BST.


Liverpool come into this game after their last fixture against Middlesbrough in the Capital One Cup end in a dramatic fashion. The course of the game was decided on penalties after the scores were level at the end of the extra time.

Jordan Rossiter gave an early lead for Brendan Rodgers' side before Adam Reach equalised for the Championship club. Suso scored for Liverpool in the extra time before Patrick Bamford once again equalised for Middlesbrough.

The final score was in Liverpool's favour as they won the match 14-13 on penalties. The Reds now face Swansea City in the next round of the competition.

Meanwhile, Everton enter this tie after suffering a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Swansea earlier this midweek. Roberto Martinez saw his side's trip to the Liberty Stadium for the Capital One Cup clash end in disappointment.

The latest loss was the Toffees second straight defeat after Everton lost last weekend's Premier League clash 2-3 to Crystal Palace at Goodison Park. Like Liverpool, even their local rivals have not enjoyed a great start to the Premier League season.

The last time Everton won at Anfield against Liverpool was in 1999. Martinez would be looking to rewrite history when his side take on Rodgers' side on Saturday.

What Managers Say

Brendan Rodgers: "We've got a number of injuries that we're just going to give every chance to. Obviously the game is 48 hours away. [Sturridge] is a player who is out on the field working. Daniel and a number of others we'll assess nearer the time. If he doesn't make it, then he won't be far off after that."

Roberto Martinez: "It's a terrific target to have and a great motivation to be able to go there and rewrite the history. We did that when we went to Old Trafford and challenges like this are something this team always responds to in the right manner. We know the fans are going to be in their best form too, so we're really excited, we're looking forward to it and it's going to be a great game of football."
