Reds Back To Winning Ways And Ready For Merseyside Derby

Finally Kenny Dalglish have Steven Gerrard back and in time for Derby day! Couple that with the excellent showing of Andy Carroll against Wolves and the Reds are looking capable of beating Everton this Saturday. The right back position is now solid once more with Martin Kelly back from injury and though Carragher and Skrtel are still weak links in central defence, Everton's lack of bite upfront will suit Liverpool as they sought to make it back-to-back wins.

Young Jordan Henderson should make way for the Liverpool captain and Luis Suarez must be preparing to prosper from Gerrard's passes this weekend. Thus why the magical Uruguayan was upset, he wanted some playing time to forge an understanding with Steven Gerrard. Instead, El Pistolero will need to work on developing that telepathy with Stevie G on the training ground.

Without Gerrard, there has been a distinct lack of Liverpool midfielders getting into the penalty box. Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson have all scored from the edge of the box this season but none has regularly featured as an attacking threat in the opposition's box. Gerrard's forceful running often takes him ahead of the last striker and that adds an extra dimension to the Reds' attack.

Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez partnership can be as lethal as Gerrard and Torres once was.

At Goodison, Everton will try to stifle Liverpool's midfield but Suarez' brilliance and movement will prove too much for Jagielka and Distin. With Gerrard bursting a lung to get in the box at every opportunity, Liverpool's attack will have an added potency to it. It's about time Liverpool started converting the chances they create game after game, the Merseyside derby would be a great place to do that.
