Full-Time: Everton 2-2 Liverpool
13.27 – Brendan Rodgers says that Pepe Reina isn’t 100% fit but the curious thing is that the Spaniard appears on the Liverpool bench. Could it be that he is being punished for a series of below par performances?
Elsewhere, Glen Johnson has had some back spasms so his place is taken by Jose Enrique.
For the home side, Marouane Fellaini is back earlier than expected to take his spot in the Everton midfield, while Steven Naismith starts instead of the suspended Steven Pienaar.
Here are the teams…
Everton: Howard, Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Naismith, Osman, Neville, Mirallas, Fellaini, Jelavic
Subs: Mucha, Hibbert, Heitinga, Oviedo, Hitzlsperger, Gueye, Vellios
Liverpool: Jones, Wisdom, Skrtel, Agger, Jose Enrique, Fernandez Saez, Sahin, Gerrard, Allen, Sterling, Suarez
Subs: Reina, Assaidi, Henderson, Coates, Downing, Carragher, Shelvey
Referee: Andre Marriner
13.39 – Suarez almost gets free of Jagielka after a fine ball from Enrique but the defender has the measure of the Uruguayan. That battle is going to be key today.
Everton then go forward but Jelavic can’t reach a pass from Naismith.
13.42 – Chance! Kevin Mirallas has Baines on his outside but he doesn’t need him. The Belgian scythes through the Liverpool defence before his cross is turned behind by Agger. Great play from the Everton wideman.
13.48 – Goal for Liverpool!
After some sustained Liverpool pressure, Enrique crosses and Sterling is fouled in the box. Before Andre Marriner has a chance to think of a penalty, Luis Suarez hammers the ball in off Baines.
Suarez then runs towards David Moyes before diving right in front of the Everton boss. He will not like that.
13.55 – Liverpool have scored again!
Leon Osman receives the first booking of the game for a foul on Sterling. From the free-kick, Steven Gerrard floats a brilliant ball in and Suarez beats the off-side trap to glance a header past Howard.
Then, Everton go straight up the other side and pull one back!
Sterling loses Osman when the ball comes in and the veteran midfielder arrows a shot past Jones.
This game is a bit good.
14.42 – Dreadful, awful, horrible miss from Sterling!
The winger is freed by a great ball by Enrique but he completely slices his shot wide. Suarez is apoplectic as he was in a good position if the youngster had just pulled the ball back.
At the other end, the Everton fans scream for a penalty as Skrtel catches Baines, but it isn’t given.
15.08 – Shelvey’s introduction has made a difference but the youngster should have played Sterling in. Instead, he took a shot that was never going to bother Howard.
A much quieter and more disjointed second half here.
15.27 – Liverpool score! NO THEY DON’T!!!
Luis Suarez wheels away after thinking he has scored the winner from a Sebastian Coates knockdown, but the ball is ruled out. He was clearly on-side so Liverpool surround the referee on the full-time whistle.
The match has ended 2-2 but the visitors will feel they should have won the game.
Thanks for keeping up, we’ll be back shortly for Chelsea v Manchester United…
