How to Watch Everton vs. Liverpool

The Egyptian winger limped off early in the second half of Liverpool's 3-0 home win over Manchester City in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday due to what appeared a groin injury.

Liverpool will check on the fitness of Mohamed Salah after he suffered a muscle problem against Manchester City. It's not possible. I don't think any of our supporters want us to do that.

It's been a miserable run in this fixture for Everton, with January's 2-1 FA Cup defeat at Anfield their 16th derby in succession without a victory.

Liverpool became the first team for 18 months to prevent Pep Guardiola's side registering a shot on target and the Reds keeper believes the players have become a more solid unit in recent weeks. We have them as well, in the league with all the games, but in this very special game we have to show up and nobody cares how hard it is for either side, you have to deliver. Michael Keane has failed to live up to expectations this term, while Phil Jagielka and Ashley Williams are both well into their thirties.

But it has been his attitude to press conferences and his negative style of play that has turned fans against him, so much so that many Everton fans want him sacked. It's only that I know for this weekend they will be motivated on the highest level.

The game provides perhaps one final opportunity for Allardyce to show some actual ambition, but he was already in a bullish mood on Friday. They have a good home record.

"That's a good football team and they are very experienced in defence". We don't need to be daft and go there and be open, but we have to go with a plan. Each Evertonian thinks at Goodison they have an extra percentage of desire. The crisis in defense continues as Ragnar Klavan, Joel Matip, and Joe Gomez are all injured, leaving Klopp with few options for rotation in his backline. Well, at least those after Saturday's Merseyside derby, a game that will always jump out in the diary.

Eliaquim Mangala and Gylfi Sigurdsson won't be featuring for Everton.

Can has missed Liverpool's last two games after hurting his back against Watford 3 weeks ago and he still hasn't returned to training at Liverpool's Melwood training ground.
