Starting XI: Everton vs Liverpool

The first Merseyside derby of the season takes place at Goodison Park on Sunday when Everton host arch-rivals Liverpool.

Premier League

Teams: Everton vs Liverpool

Venue: Goodison Park, Liverpool

Time: 1:30pm

Sunday's clash is set to become the first time the Reds start a Merseyside derby without a Scouser since the 1986 FA Cup final.

The Toffees currently find themselves four places ahead of Liverpool in the league standings, but they only have one more point than their neighbours.

Both sides have had an inconsistent start to the season, but Everton have been better in front of goals, having hit the back of the net 11 times already.

This fixture saw two draws in 2014/15, something both teams are hoping to avoid this time around.

Romelu Lukaku has been in good form for Everton so far in this campaign – he has scored four goals in seven games, while Liverpool's top striker is Daniel Sturridge, who has scored two goals in 153 minutes of football.

In team news, Everton will be without Leighton Baines, John Stones and Steven Pienaar due to injury.

Liverpool will be without the sidelined Roberto Firmino, Christian Benteke and captain Jordan Henderson.

Here is how the teams will line up:

Everton: Howard; Galloway, Funes Mori, Jagielka, Browning; Barry, McCarthy; Naismith, Barkley, Deulofeu; Lukaku

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