Former Everton star Ollie Dacourt says his derby memories against Liverpool are always with him.

He scored just twice in 30 games - one in an emphatic win over Middlesbrough - and the other in the derby as he opened the scoring at Anfield on April 3, 1999.

Dacourt puts that moment right at the top of his achievements - quite a claim considering he went on to play regular Champions League football at Leeds, Roma and Inter Milan.

"I could not play in the first derby when we played at Goodison, I was suspended and I was really sad about that," Dacourt, now 36 and retired, told evertontv.

"Many times I have been asked what was the biggest moment in my career and I always say Everton against Liverpool when I scored. For me, it was unbelievable.

"It was the 10-year anniversary of Hillsborough so it was something special. I remember there was a minute's silence and then the whole stadium stood up and began to applaud.

"The noise and the emotion were unbelievable - the atmosphere that day was the best I ever experienced. Then one minute into the game I scored, which was fantastic."
