Liverpool expected 4-3-3 v Everton: 28-year-old axed
By Amir Mir
Liverpool could make one change for their Premier League clash against Everton on Saturday afternoon at Anfield.
Prior to the international break, the Reds recorded a 1-1 draw at Manchester City and they will now be looking to earn a much-needed three points against their Merseyside rivals.
Adam Lallana, who suffered a thigh injury while on international duty, could be axed and replaced by the returning Jordan Henderson in the only change from the previous league encounter.
Midfielder Lallana, 28, has been a key figure for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, with his high, aggressive and energetic pressing winning plaudits from the fans.
The front three might consist of Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Sadio Mane who will be tasked to cause damage in the final third.

Senegal international Mane netted a late injury-time winner against the Toffees during the reverse fixture at Goodison Park in December.
In the middle of the park, the improving Emre Can could sit in front of the back four, with Henderson and Wijnaldum possibly partnering him in midfield.
The Reds have not kept a clean sheet since their impressive 2-0 win against Tottenham in mid-February.
Klopp could stick with the same back four that played in the last game which can enable his team to add consistency to their game.
Full-back duo Nathaniel Clyne and James Milner might play alongside centre-back pairing Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan with Simon Mignolet between the sticks.
