Liverpool owner John W Henry is expected on Merseyside this weekend.

The Guardian says Henry, Liverpool's principal owner, is expected to attend the Merseyside derby against Everton when Kenny Dalglish will take charge of his first home game since replacing Roy Hodgson last Saturday.

The chairman, Tom Werner, may attend the game too. It will be the Scot's first appearance as a Liverpool manager at Anfield since a goalless FA Cup fifth-round tie against Everton in February 1991.

Henry has not visited Anfield since the 2-0 victory over Chelsea in November. He has subsequently had to bring forward plans to replace Hodgson, complete with another expensive pay-off to a Liverpool manager, amid poor results, falling attendances and open revolt against the 63-year-old by the club's supporters, before installing Dalglish until the end of this campaign.
