Free-scoring Liverpool will make the trip across Stanley Park to face Everton in the Merseyside Derby on Wednesday.

Jurgen Klopp's men have netted ten goals without reply in their last three outings in all competitions as they sit just two points behind Chelsea at the top of the Premier League.

The Reds will be keen to make amends for their derby defeat to Everton at Anfield last season, which brought their 11-year unbeaten run in the Merseyside Derby to an end.

Here's how Klopp could line his side up.
