Liverpool will take on Everton at Anfield in the 222nd Merseyside derby match

Two arch-rival teams Liverpool and Everton is going to face each other in the 222nd Merseyside derby match that will be played at Anfield. This match is scheduled to kick off at 20:00 GMT. It is sure that both teams will fight for victory in order to make the match memorable.
Midfielder, Joe Allen, has been recovered from injury, but his inclusion in the squad is highly depending on the decision of Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers, who believes that playing him at home to Everton may do more harm than good.
However, the club will be deprived of the service of defender Mamadou Sakho who is still recovering from hamstring injury. The good news is that Jon Flanagan is set to make his comeback after long absence.
On the other hand, Everton manager Roberto Martínez will leave no stone unturned to get the victory. He may include loan signing Lacina Traoré in the first eleven.
Everton is facing the threat of not getting the service of defensive quartet Phil Jagielka, Sylvain Distin, Antolin Alcaraz and Seamus Coleman. The uncertainty of midfielders Ross Barkley and Steven Pienaar will raise question about the performance of the club.
However, Everton will try their best to win the match and break their losing streak as they did not win in their last 13 Premier League visits to Anfield.

It is more than a match for both the clubs. Victory at Anfield will help either of the teams finishing in the top four of the Premier League point table and qualifying for the Champions League this season.
