Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has virtually a full squad to choose from for his return to the Anfield dugout.

However, the 59-year-old will be without Scousers Steven Gerrard (suspended) and Jamie Carragher (injured) for the 215th Merseyside derby.

Midfielder Joe Cole has recovered from an ankle problem to rejoin the squad, though, while Fabio Aurelio is likely to start at left-back after sitting out the midweek defeat at Blackpool.

Dalglish's biggest decision revolves around young right-back Martin Kelly, who has shown good form in the last two games, but could come under pressure from Glen Johnson, who filled in on the left against the Seasiders.

Everton are again likely to be without defender Phil Jagielka for the derby.

The England international has missed three of the last four games with a thigh strain and is still short of fitness.

David Moyes otherwise has no injury concerns, although top goalscorer Tim Cahill is on international duty with Australia at the Asian Cup.

Moyes expects Steven Pienaar to be available despite giving him permission to speak to another club.

Liverpool (from): Reina, Kelly, Skrtel, Agger, Aurelio, Lucas, Meireles, Johnson, Rodriguez, Kuyt, Torres, Gulacsi, Kyrgiakos, Konchesky, Poulsen, Shelvey, Cole, Ngog, Babel, Jovanovic, Pacheco.

Everton (from): Howard, Neville, Hibbert, Heitinga, Distin, Baines, Coleman, Pienaar, Osman, Rodwell, Fellaini, Arteta, Bilyaletdinov, Saha, Beckford, Anichebe, Gueye, Baxter, Duffy, Silva, Mucha.

Pulis To Liverpool Might Just Work

One Mailboxer believes that Tony Pulis managing Liverpool isn't as silly as you might think. Plus Bournemouth aren't that romantic and we're all guilty of ignoring Everton...

It's Not As Simple As Losing Luis Suarez...

That's the view of Liverpool fans in the mailbox as the Reds continue to struggle without their talisman. Suarez isn't doing particularly well at Barca either, it should be said...
