Can Steven Gerrard lead Liverpool to a much needed three points in the Merseyside derby this afternoon?(credit: Ryu Voelkel
Everton are narrow favourites to take all three points at home to Liverpool in the Premier League in this afternoon's Merseyside derby
Liverpool, looking to make a winning start under new owners NESV, have striker Fernando Torres fit and he will start, while left-back Paul Konchesky (hamstring) is also back in contention.
But Reds boss Roy Hodgson is without forward Dirk Kuyt (ankle), who is facing a month on the sidelines.
Everton are without midfielder Marouane Fellaini (hamstring) for this afternoon's derby clash, while England defender Phil Jagielka (also hamstring) is also unlikely to feature.
