How Liverpool Will Line Up Against Everton

Brendan Rodgers' hand may be forced in selecting Liverpool's starting line-up against Everton in the Premier League on Tuesday night, due to the Reds' mounting injury problems.

Rodgers has bemoaned his lack of options twice in the last week, telling press before Saturday's FA Cup victory at Bournemouth that he only had 15 players training during the build-up to the tie, as per the London Evening Standard; on Monday, he was quoted by the Belfast Telegraph as saying:

There is still going to be quality players and the football ideas of both teams will come out but it is unfortunate a number of players are out of the game - and a lot of them starting players - it would've made it a different game.

It is unfortunate both teams are coming into the game with not the strongest squads because both have picked up injuries.

Daniel Agger, Mamadou Sakho, Jose Enrique, Glen Johnson and Lucas Leiva all miss the Merseyside derby, and there are doubts over Joe Allen's availability, as per Neil Jones of the Liverpool Echo.

Based on a rather thin squad, Rodgers must make the best of a bad situation for potentially the most exciting league derby in decades.
