We welcome Aaron Lennon to the Everton fold and what a game for him to start his Goodison career. I think Roberto Martinez will throw him straight in. I also think Macca will start the game in place of Mo.

To be honest I give a shite who plays, as long as beat this shower.  

Roberto said: "When we play the Merseyside derby at Goodison, we want it to be our Merseyside derby and that's the only thing we are looking at.

"As a football club, we have been in a period when we haven't been enjoying the results that we wanted, so we will look forward to it being our Merseyside derby."

 "These derbies are special. When you are involved and on the inside, you understand why it's such an incredible fixture in world football. It's everything that you expect and more in an intense derby.

"The last derby we had at Goodison - on top of all the emotions and what it means and the rivalry in the city - was a phenomenal game with plenty of goals between two teams with a really attacking mindset.

"I do expect very much the same from two teams who are going into the game in very good moments of form.

"Liverpool have found a way of performing and are enjoying a good run, and we feel in a similar situation in terms of the confidence from the win that we had against Crystal Palace."

Everton squad: Robles, Coleman, Stones, Jagielka, Baines, Besic, Barry, Naismith, Barkley, Mirallas, Lukaku, McCarthy, Gibson, Griffiths, Garbutt, Oviedo, Browning, Hibbert, Distin, Alcaraz, Kone, Lennon

Kipper's Starting XI: Robles, Coleman, Stones, Jagielka, Baines, McCarthy, Barry, Naismith, Lennon, Mirallas, Lukaku. 

What Team Would You Start With?

I like Billy's idea, would like to see how we fare with such a dominant midfield. Plus, it might not be a bad idea to see how we manage without El Wantaway even if he does contribute 10min a game. I still think of the club he wants doesn't come in for him, he'll end up staying

Why would you drop Besic when he has been our best player so far this season,Barry should be dropped as he is too slow. I would leave McCarthy on the bench and bring him on in the second half. Lennon and mirrelas on the wings and Naismith behind lulaku, seems good to me.
Arthur, Perth Western Australiao, 11:10 PM 6/02/2015
Besic for Barry and also Barks for Naismith making runs with ball at the RS defence. Think he can hurt them if not Naismith on as sub, plan B.

I would lose mirallas for besic and play 4-3-3
Billy, Liverpool, 5:07 PM 6/02/2015
I would play McCarthy Besic and Barry and dominate the MF. Bring Lennon on second half once we have drawn their sting. Hopefully Mo will give Stevie the send off he deserves for all his dirty tricks in previous Derbies.

I agree with the team. I do also agree with Barry out for Besic but Barry won't be dropped. He had a good game against Palace. If anything I'd leave McCarthy on bench for now.
Marc, Huyton, 3:20 PM 6/02/2015
The only thing id change is Besic for Barry,but just be mind full of liverpool dirty tactics.Ross in second half.
Blueberry, Shires, 2:52 PM 6/02/2015
Agree with kippers starting XI but Barry out and Besic in, maybe he'll give Gerrard the send off he deserves!
