Liverpool team news with seven players set to miss the Merseyside derby against Everton at Goodson Park.

Liverpool aim for a third successive Premier League victory when they face Everton in the Merseyside derby today in the early kick-off game.

The Reds ensured somewhat of a stuttering start but are beginning to gain some momentum in the early stages of the title race.

Liverpool will also be without seven players for the clash.

Liverpool team news ahead of Everton derby

It looks very unlikely that Arthur Melo will be available after his deadline day arrival from Juventus.

The midfielder has signed on a season-long loan to ease the Reds’ issues in the engine room.

But it doesn’t look like Arthur will get international clearance in time to make a potential debut.

Jordan Henderson suffered a hamstring injury in the dramatic 2-1 win over Newcastle United earlier on Wednesday. 

Thiago Alcantara is still sidelined with a hamstring issue but should return to training next week, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is unavailable with a similar problem for the long term.

Naby Keita is still to play this season after illness and now has a muscle complaint.

Meanwhile, Ibrahima Konate should be back in training when the international break takes place towards the end of the month.

Calvin Ramsay – who joined from Aberdeen in the summer – is still to make his debut.

The 19-year-old has a back setback and Liverpool have been cautious with him because of his age. R

In better news, Diogo Jota (hamstring) could be back on the bench.

The forward has been on the treatment table since July but returned to training on Thursday.

Darwin Nunez will definitely be in the squad after serving a three-match suspension.
