Everton vs. Liverpool: Lineups

Everton are without a few first choice players for the Merseyside Derby, and their depth will be tested on Sunday afternoon. However, Marouane Fellaini is fit, and will start in the center of midfield after missing last week's game against QPR. Steven Pienaar is out through a suspension, while Tony Hibbert and John Heitinga are on the bench but still not quite fit to start. Everton are still without Glen Johnson, Lucas Leiva, Fabio Borini and Pepe Reina.

Everton starting lineup (4-4-1-1): Tim Howard; Leighton Baines, Sylvain Distin, Phil Jagielka, Seamus Coleman; Leon Osman, Marouane Fellaini, Phil Neville, Steven Naismith; Kevin Mirallas; Nikica Jelavic

Liverpool starting lineup (4-3-3): Brad Jones; Jose Enrique, Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel, Andre Wisdom; Joe Allen, Nuri Sahin, Steven Gerrard; Suso, Luis Suarez, Raheem Sterling

This is an extremely young Liverpool side, but the youngsters in the team have impressed so far this season. Wisdom doesn't offer as much going forward as Johnson, but he's certainly physically imposing. Liverpool might have a tough time stopping attacks through the middle, where they have no true defensive midfielder.
