Liverpool Vs. Everton, 2012 Premier League: Lineups

Ahead of a Merseyside Derby that could see his team go ahead of rivals Liverpool with a victory, Everton manager David Moyes has made 6 changes, with Phil Jagielka returning from injury and Steven Pienaar eligible again for selection. Phil Neville, Tim Cahill, Nikicia Jelavic, Leon Osman and John Heitinga drop to the bench.

Liverpool name captain Steven Gerrard and Andy Carroll to their starting lineup. The return of Gerrard will be a welcome change for Liverpool fans from Charlie Adam, who has been very poor of late. Carroll replaces Kuyt, and is partnered with Luis Suarez.

With both teams employing 3 traditional target men, this match looks to have a lot of long balls in it, and an emphasis on set pieces. These Merseyside derbies are often tight affairs, so don’t be surprised if the winning goal comes from a corner or free kick.

Liverpool (4-4-2): Reina; Enrique, Skrtel, Carragher, Kelly; Downing, Spearing, Gerrard, Henderson; Suarez, Carroll
Subs: Doni, Maxi, Coates, Kuyt, Adam, Shelvey, Flanagan

Everton (4-4-1-1): Howard; Baines, Distin, Jagielka, Hibbert; Pienaar, Rodwell, Fellaini, Coleman; Anichebe; Sracqualursi
