The Reds host Everton later today.
"I have two top derby memories," the 27-year-old told Press Association Sport. "One was when we beat Everton in the semi-final last season - not because we played an incredible game but just because we beat them.
"The best one I had was against Sunderland [at Newcastle] when we beat them 5-0 on Halloween - it was incredible.
"But for the importance of a derby it was Everton in the semi-final.
"The best thing for a player is the derby atmosphere. In the stadium it is incredible, it is like you are playing Barcelona.
"If you win, after the game you go out for dinner [you see] it means a lot for people."
