The third member of Everton’s defence over the age of 30, Leighton Baines is another player who is highly experienced in Merseyside derbies- having spent the past decade representing the Toffees, making over 300 Premier League appearances.

Despite his age, Baines remains a crucial part of Everton’s side and his deft ability from set-pieces could be the avenue for an Everton victory this weekend. With Nathaniel Clyne playing opposite him in Liverpool’s defence, Baines has the opportunity to exploit his compatriot when the former Southampton man pushes forward.
