Match Preview

Dalglish ready for Kop return Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has virtually a full squad to choose from for his first return to the Anfield dugout in nearly 20 years against Everton on Sunday. However, the 59-year-old, who only flew in from holiday in the Persian Gulf last Saturday to take over from Roy Hodgson, will be without Scousers Steven Gerrard (suspended) and Jamie Carragher (injured) for the 215th Merseyside derby. Midfielder Joe Cole has recovered from an ankle problem to rejoin the squad while Fabio Aurelio is likely to start at left-back after sitting out the midweek defeat at Blackpool. Dalglish's biggest decision revolves around young right-back Martin Kelly, who has shown good form in the last two games, but could come under pressure from Glen Johnson, who filled in on the left against the Seasiders. Dalglish hopes his players will display the intelligence required after errors cost the side defeat in his first two matches in charge. Daniel Agger's misjudged first-minute challenge on Manchester United's Dimitar Berbatov and Steven Gerrard's lunge at Michael Carrick ensured the Scot's first game in charge ended with an FA Cup exit at Old Trafford last weekend. And more defensive slip-ups contributed to a 2-1 defeat at Blackpool in midweek. Dalglish is desperately in need of a win but will send out his team at Anfield telling them to play the game and not the occasion. There have been 19 red cards in this fixture in the last 14 years and Dalglish is keen not to add to that tally. "The players here know the importance of the derby and sometimes the local lads get carried away and are too motivated and get a bit heated," said the Reds boss. "Nowadays if you say 'Good morning' to someone you've got a chance of getting a red card. "But you can't blame players for being passionate and committed - they've been highly criticised for not being passionate and committed. "If there is a bit of understanding from the officials I'm sure it would ease things along a bit. "You have to be intelligent - the fact it is a derby doesn't change the rules of the game, they are exactly the same. "But you have to go and compete, just as you have in every other game. "We want to see the players competing but within the rules of the game and if I have 11 players on the pitch we have a chance of winning.' Everton are again likely to be without defender Phil Jagielka. The England international has missed three of the last four games with a thigh strain and is still short of fitness. Manager David Moyes otherwise has no injury concerns, although top goalscorer Tim Cahill is on international duty with Australia at the Asian Cup. Moyes expects Steven Pienaar to be available despite giving him permission to speak to another club while striker Ayegbeni Yakubu has joined Leicester on loan. Moyes is relieved Gerrard will not be lining up against his Everton side - but expects Liverpool to feel the same about Cahill. Moyes is well aware of Gerrard's importance to Liverpool but is again without his own talisman in Cahill. Moyes said: "Of course I am pleased Gerrard isn't playing. Who wouldn't be? He is an outstanding player. "I have always said if I could have got Steven Gerrard in the team, he would probably have been one of my first picks. "I am delighted - but we'll also miss Tim Cahill. "Tim's nine goals - it's hard not to have someone like that in the Premier League."

Match Report

Honours even at Anfield It was not an entirely happy homecoming for Kenny Dalglish on his first match at Anfield since becoming Liverpool manager for the second time but a 2-2 draw in an entertaining 215th Merseyside derby represented some progress. The club's legendary former player went into the game on the back of successive defeats to Manchester United and Blackpool but the result against their closest rivals at least ensured his first point. However, there are still many issues to address as Liverpool's defensive frailties let an early advantage slip in a frenetic six minutes after half-time and their pride was only salvaged by a penalty in the final quarter. Raul Meireles picked the perfect time to score his first goal to give the club he joined in the summer an interval lead but Sylvain Distin and Jermaine Beckford soon turned that around after the break. But the Reds earned a deserved draw when Dirk Kuyt stroked home his fifth derby goal from the spot. Watched by principal owner John Henry and chairman Tom Werner, Dalglish received the expected rousing welcome which the Kop had been waiting to give him for a week since taking over from Roy Hodgson. The occasion may have got to his players more than him as Everton enjoyed the better of the early exchanges. However, it was not long before Fernando Torres showed he was in the kind of mood which had brought 63 goals in his previous 99 Barclays Premier League appearances. Having volleyed over from a Meireles corner the Spaniard almost opened the scoring in the 16th minute with a typical piece of brilliance. Anticipating the bounce of the ball better than Distin the 26-year-old cleverly turned the centre-half before twisting inside his defensive partner John Heitinga and unleashing a left-footed shot which beat Tim Howard but rebounded off the far post. Kuyt charged into the area to reach the loose ball but his effort was deflected over. Dalglish's decision to play Glen Johnson out of position at left-back in the last two matches had raised a few eyebrows but the England international's right-footedness was pivotal in setting up the opening goal. Having cut inside in the 29th minute his far-post cross was headed down by Kuyt but Howard saved brilliantly low to his right and got up immediately to block the Dutchman's follow-up. The Everton goalkeeper may have felt his work was done but the ball dropped to Meireles on the edge of the area and he drilled a swerving shot inside the near post with Howard unsighted. Meireles was having one of his best games since arriving in the summer and when Kuyt's inch-perfect through-ball picked him out Howard was forced to tip a shot around his near post. Half-time brought not only a change of player - Sotirios Kyrgiakos replacing the ill Daniel Agger - but a major shift in momentum. Just 42 seconds after the restart Martin Skrtel allowed Distin to head Mikel Arteta's corner past Jose Reina and Johnson could not keep the ball out. Everton went ahead six minutes later while Martin Kelly was laying pole-axed on the pitch after landing awkwardly after an aerial collision with Victor Anichebe. The ball found its way to Leon Osman and he jinked his way into the penalty area before slipping a pass inside for Beckford to slot past Reina, who was booked for his protestations about Kelly not being able to receive treatment. But just as Everton looked to have secured a grip on the game Howard handed their rivals a way back in the 68th minute when he tripped Maxi Rodriguez as they challenged for the breakdown of Meireles' free-kick. Referee Phil Dowd pointed to the spot and Kuyt duly dispatched. The closing moments became increasingly frenetic as the home side pressed for the winner they desperately craved to get the second era of Dalglish up and running. Even the legendary manager's encouragement from the sidelines could not cajole the breakthrough. But with Henry and Werner in the city for the next few days he may have to save his most persuasive arguments for the owners as he seeks reinforcements for his squad. Liverpool are only four points above the relegation zone and considerable improvement is still required to banish the lingering but almost unthinkable spectre of relegation.
