Liverpool XI vs Everton: Predicted lineup, confirmed team news, injury latest for Merseyside derby

Liverpool will be without one of their defensive stars when they host Everton on Saturday.

Liverpool will be without Andy Robertson for this weekend's Merseyside derby against Everton.


The left-back suffered a shoulder injury while on international duty with Scotland and Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Robertson will undergo surgery, potentially ruling him out for three months.


Kostas Tsimikas is therefore set for an extended run in the side, starting on Saturday when Everton make the short trip to Anfield.


Diogo Jota is available again to Jurgen Klopp after suspension, but Curtis Jones remains out as he serves the second game of his three-match ban for the red card picked up against Tottenham.


There were question marks over Cody Gakpo's fitness, as he recovers from the knee injury that has kept him on the sidelines since that Tottenham match, but he was pictured in first-team training on Thursday and is in contention to be involved.


The derby comes too soon though for Thiago and Stefan Bajcetic, despite Klopp's hope that the pair would be available straight after the international break.


After starring for Uruguay in their win over Brazil on Wednesday, Darwin Nunez revealed he had been battling cramp by the end of the match and with a long journey back to Liverpool, Klopp could opt to start the striker on the bench.


Mohamed Salah will once again be the main up front - he has scored or assisted in seven of Liverpool's eight Premier League matches so far this season.


Predicted Liverpool XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Mac Allister, Szoboszlai, Gravenberch; Diaz, Jota, Salah


Injuries: Robertson, Thiago, Bajcetic

Doubts: Gakpo

Suspended: Jones

Time and date: 12.30pm on Saturday, October 21, 2023

Venue: Anfield
