Everton v Liverpool

A victory in the Merseyside derby would take Everton level on points with 10th-placed Arsenal, while also slowing Liverpool's title charge.

Jurgen Klopp's Reds only need two victories to secure top spot.

Team news

Andre Gomes has recovered from a minor knock and is in contention for Everton.

Yerry Mina and Fabia Delph (muscle injuries) are ruled out along with Theo Walcott, who continues his recovery following abdominal surgery. Jean-Philippe Gbamin (Achilles) remains a long-term absentee.

Liverpool have no fresh injury concerns ahead of Sunday night's derby.
