Liverpool have a host of players closing in on a return to first-team action as they prepare to face Merseyside neighbours Everton at Anfield in the Premier League.
Head coach Jurgen Klopp dropped a hint over Diogo Jota’s return in his pre-match press conference, with the Portuguese international named on the bench, after four months out of action.
New Everton head coach Sean Dyche is without Dominic Calvert-Lewin after the striker picked up an injury in the 1-0 win at home to Premier League leaders Arsenal on February 4.
Here’s the latest on who could be available and the likely starting lineups ahead of the Premier League derby.

Jota, Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk are all included amongst the substitutes for Liverpool tonight with Klopp also reshuffling his midfield from the Wolves defeat last time out.
Thiago Alcantara and Naby Keita drop out with experienced duo Fabinho and club captain Jordan Henderson recalled.
Calvert-Lewin’s absence forces Dyche’s only change from the bullish win over Arsenal with Elias Simms preferred over Neal Maupay in attack.
