When Liverpool visit Goodison Park on Saturday there will be plenty going on at Goodison Park - and not just on the pitch.

Of course, watching theBlues attempt to secure three vital points is top of the bill, but around the ground, the Club will also be celebrating its derby heroes of years gone by.

Here's our guide to what's happening...

In the Fan Zone, special limited edition pin badges depicting 11 derby heroes will be given away. The fun begins at 10.45am and there will be great music from two local bands as well. More info.

The Players' Parade will once again be in operation, allowing supporters to get autographs and pictures with their favourite Everton players. Situated towards the Bullens Road side of the Park End car park, players usually arrive from around two-and-a-half hours before kick off.

Inside the stadium, from 11.45am there will be a T-shirt cannon firing free Everton t-shirts into the crowd.

For the first time, the Everton Heritage Society will be in place in St Luke's Church on Goodison Road, offering fans the chance to take a pre-match trip down memory lane.

Just before kick-off a new video, set to music specially mixed by DJ and celebrity Evertonian Anton Powers will be played to ramp up what is already sure to be an electric Goodison Park atmosphere.

At half-time, derby heroes Lee Carsley and Kevin Campbell will be welcomed onto the pitch. And before that, chart hopeful Jack Topping will perform his cover of the Beatles' classic Let It Be.

After the game, the Fan Zone will reopen, with 1987 title-winner Ian Snodin providing expert analysis of the match.

The Matchday Programme is also as jam-packed as ever and is available before the game from sellers in and around the stadium. More info.
