Shirts worn by players will be autographed after the game at Anfield and will then be auctioned off to support the Disaster Response Committee - which is distributing funds to help those affected by the disaster which has claimed more than 22,000 lives s life.

Funds raised for DEC will help provide people in the region with much-needed shelter, medical supplies, and basic food and water through uncertain times. The Premier League has also announced that all division players and officials will wear black armbands this weekend as a mark of respect.

A joint statement from the Merseyside clubs read: "Everyone associated with both clubs has been left deeply saddened by the destruction and huge loss of life as a result of the earthquakes, and the funds raised from the auction will help deliver much-needed aid directly to those affected.

"More than 22,000 people are now known to have died in the earthquakes, with many more injured, missing or displaced. Hospitals and schools are among the countless buildings to have collapsed and, with freezing winter conditions hitting both countries, humanitarian needs are expected to grow in the coming days.

"Details of the online auction of match shirts will be confirmed in due course. Supporters can also donate to the appeal directly by visiting

"The thoughts of everyone at Everton and Liverpool continue to be with all those affected by Monday’s earthquakes."
