Everton vs Liverpool - Lineups, Preview and Prediction

The Egypt global continued his sensational campaign with the opening goal in Liverpool's 3-0 quarter-final first-leg win, but he was substituted seven minutes into the second half with a groin injury.

Liverpool are set to give Mohamed Salah every chance to be ready to play in the derby after limping off against Manchester City.

The Reds are unlikely to call upon Salah or Roberto Firmino after both were taken off against City.

Ahead of the weekend's game, Toffees boss Sam Allardyce said he's looking to take advantage of the Reds. There is nearly no chance of the Toffees getting relegated but a point against their arch-rivals will boost Everton's confidence and also take them further towards safety.

The former Southampton man is likely to shoulder plenty of the attacking burden for Jurgen Klopp's men, with Republic of Ireland star Coleman being in his eye line.

If Liverpool win on Saturday, it will be the first time since 1989-90 they will have managed to win 10+ away games in consecutive top-flight seasons. It's a good time to play a derby for us in between the two Champions League games.

No Everton player has been directly involved in more goals in all competitions this season than Dominic Calvert-Lewin (eight goals and six assists) - level with Wayne Rooney.

Klopp, though, will be well aware that the tie is not yet over, and thus he may feel he can not afford to throw full force at Everton on Saturday. They have a good home record.

"It is a derby game after all and it is an important game for the club and the supporters".

Allardyce, who was appointed in November 2017, got off to a great start at Goodison Park, winning four of his first five games in charge of the Toffees. They were scared, our players, by their (City's) talents and the fluency of their football. Each Evertonian thinks at Goodison they have an extra percentage of desire. We don't need to be daft and go there and be open, but we have to go with a plan. Other players from the Reds' side who won't be seen on the field are midfielders Emre Can who is bogged by a back injury, Adam Lallana down with a hamstring and Ben Woodburn.

Eliaquim Mangala and Gylfi Sigurdsson won't be featuring for Everton.
