The Derby will kick-off at 5.30pm
Merseyside Police has withdrawn a legal challenge against a late kick-off at Saturday's derby.
Police were concerned the late start would increase the risk of trouble at the stadium and inside pubs screening the match.
Liverpool City Council had refused to amend Goodison Park's ground safety certificate to allow an earlier start.
During discussions at South Sefton Magistrates' Court, Everton agreed to further segregation arrangements.
So the lawyers for the police withdrew the case once additional arrangements were agreed.
