Confirmed Liverpool-XI: £36m-duo return; goalscorer dropped; massive boost for LFC as Everton lose big players

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has named the same team that started against Aston Villa last week for today's crunch clash with Everton at Goodison Park.

FULL TEAM: Mignolet, Skrtel, Sakho, Can, Clyne, Moreno, Lucas, Milner, Coutinho, Ings, Sturridge

SUBS: Bogdan, Gomez, Rossiter, Allen, Ibe, Lallana, Origi

EVERTON: Howard, Galloway, Funes Mori, Jagielka (c), Browning, Barry, McCarthy, Naismith, Barkley, Deulofeu, Lukaku.

SUBS: Robles, Gibson, Oviedo, Kone, Lennon, Osman, Holgate.

* Lallana has the right to be disappointed today. He scored on Thursday, and now he's dropped to the bench, which is (IMO) bad man-management. Why should he continue to put in the effort if he's never rewarded for it?

* Good to see Sturridge starting again. The striker has a great record against Everton, and after seven days of recovery time, he should be raring to go.

* The even better news is that Sturridge will not go on international duty after the game, so there's no chance of injury before the Spurs game.

* Gomez is on the bench for the fourth league game in a row. He's clearly a victim of the formation switch, just like Javier Manquillo last season.

* Everton are missing some big players, including Baines, Mirallas, Stones, Coleman, and Cleverly, which is massive boost for Liverpool.

* Everton's bench is also pretty weak, so if Liverpool can get into the lead, Martinez has very few top quality options to bring into the game.

* Even with these advantages, though, Everton are on fire creatively this season, and are currently averaging two goals a game, with Lukaku already on 8 goals/assists for the season. The Belgian has directly contributed to more goals than the entire Liverpool team put together (!)
