3′ EVERTON LEAD! Doucoure wins the ball back in midfield and he nods it to Rodriguez. Richarlison times his run perfectly to get on the end of his pass before he hits his shot across goal, beating Alisson and finding the far bottom corner. 1-0 Everton!

1′ Everton win an early corner and Coleman whips it into the box for the visitors. It misses everyone at the near post and ends up hitting Godfrey, but he can’t sort his feet out quick enough to get it on target.

1′ Davies gets the game underway for Everton!

The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away.

Liverpool haven’t lost four consecutive Premier League matches since December 2002 under Gerard Houllier.

Carlo Ancelotti makes three changes to the team that lost to Manchester City on Wednesday, with Coleman, Rodriguez and Gomes all coming in. Iwobi and Sigurdsson drop to the bench, where Calvert-Lewin and Allan are named after returning from injury. Yerry Mina is out with a calf problem.

Jurgen Klopp was clearly happy with his side’s performance against Leipzig in midweek as he names an unchanged line-up today, which means Firmino makes his 200th Premier League appearance for the club.

EVERTON SUBS: Bernard, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Niels Nkounkou, Allan, Alex Iwobi, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Robin Olsen, Joshua King, Tyler Onyango.

EVERTON STARTING XI (4-5-1): Jordan Pickford; Seamus Coleman, Mason Holgate, Michael Keane, Ben Godfrey; James Rodriguez, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Tom Davies, Andre Gomes, Lucas Digne; Richarlison.

LIVERPOOL SUBS: Nathaniel Phillips, Neco Williams, Ben Davies, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Divock Origi, Konstantinos Tsimikas, Xherdan Shaqiri, Adrian.

LIVERPOOL STARTING XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ozan Kabak, Jordan Henderson, Andy Robertson; Thiago Alcantara, Georginio Wijnaldum, Curtis Jones; Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane.

Liverpool have slipped down to sixth in the table after losing their last three games, and they’re without a win in five at Anfield, having lost the last three at home. They do come into today on the back of a win though after a 2-0 away win at RB Leipzig in the Champions League. As for Everton, they would go level on points with their rivals with a win today. They’ve won just one of their last six in the league, but have been good away from home recently, going unbeaten in their previous seven on the road (W5 D2).

Hello and welcome to live coverage of the Premier League meeting between Liverpool and Everton at Anfield!
