Liverpool team news

Liverpool will be without Leanne Kiernan, who is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering an ankle injury during her side's opening day victory over Chelsea. The forward - who was last season's top scorer for Matt Beard's side - is to undergo surgery.

The Reds continue to be without Shanice van de Sanden, who is expected to return after the international break.

Loanee Charlotte Wardlaw is available once more, having sat out Sunday's victory over parent club Chelsea.

Liverpool vs Everton score prediction

There has just been minor tinkering this summer to the Liverpool side that stormed to promotion last term, and it showed against Chelsea; they turned in a resilient, disciplined, robust team display to shock the WSL champions.

Everton meanwhile have had a summer of turnover as they continue to rebuild and find their feet under Sorensen. Liverpool should be able to capitalise on the Toffees not yet being at their best under their new boss.

Prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Everton
