Liverpool vs Everton: Team news
Naby Keita is still out with a hamstring injury, though he was close to playing against Southampton. But Klopp didn’t take any chances and it looks like he won’t be ready for the Merseyside derby as well.
Harvey Elliott is making decent improvements in his healing from a major ankle injury. However, he won’t be able to rejoin the team for a while.
Roberto Firmino is expected to be out for at least another couple of weeks due to a hamstring injury. The Brazilian picked up the injury against Atletico Madrid in early November.
Curtis Jones’ eye injury will force him out for “a few weeks,” with the midfielder combating to return before the 2021 ends. Thus, the Everton game might come too soon for him.
Joe Gomez is making good progress in his rehabilitation from a calf injury, and the defender is expected to be back on his feet before the new year.
Fortunately, there is no player suspended for the clash, hence except for injured ones, Klopp has some decisions to make for the weekend clash.
