Kolo Toure: Liverpool exit set to be confirmed

Kolo Toure: Former Liverpool defender heading to Celtic

Jurgen Klopp claims nobody will be rested as Liverpool prepare to face Everton in the Merseyside derby at Anfield on Wednesday night.

Team news

Klopp though was desperate to keep everyone on their toes at his Tuesday briefing when he claimed: “We have a situation where we can change.”

The Liverpool boss is expected to name a string side, but there could be one or two changes from the side that won at Bournemouth.

The Reds boss has some injury concerns ahead of the Merseyside derby.

Kolo Toure, who was replaced by Mamadou Sakho on 67 minutes on the south coast,  was struggling with cramp.

Divock Origi, who was a second-half sub for Roberto Firmino has a minor back problem, but is expected to be fit and Martin Skrtel missed the last game with a groin problem and is still a doubt.

Everton captain Phil Jagielka and Seamus Coleman will both miss the Merseyside derby.

The pair both have hamstring injuries – Jagielka has been out since April 9 while Coleman injured himself at the weekend – and give manager Roberto Martinez a major headache in defence.

Midfielder Tom Cleverley and winger Aaron Lennon will be assessed while James McCarthy returns from suspension but Martinez has big decisions with a make-or-break FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United on Saturday.
