Liverpool have brought Daniel Sturridge back in to their side which will face Everton at Goodison Park on Monday evening.
The Reds ran out a strong 3-0 scoreline in their previous fixture at the Riverside Stadium against Middlesbrough last Wednesday.
This has led manager Jurgen Klopp into naming an unchanged eleven, while big name attacker Sturridge has returned to the bench.
The 27-year-old has missed recent clashes through injury, but he will now be hoping for some pitch time in the crucial clash.
Liverpool revealed the team news on their official Twitter account ahead of the Monday evening Merseyside derby.

The Merseyside duo head into the fixture with six places and 11 points between them.
Liverpool currently have the upper hand in third place with 34 points, while Everton trail in ninth with 23 points.
The Reds also have a fantastic recent record in the historic fixture and they will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to 13 matches against the Toffees.
The most recent fixture between the two in April even brought an emphatic 4-0 victory for Liverpool with goals from Divock Origi, Mamadou Sakho, Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho ensuring their side a victory.
They will now be keen to see a similar scoreline at Goodison Park for the 8.00pm kick off on Sky Sports 1.
