Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has revealed how teammates made Jon Flanagan the derby hero on Saturday.

Local lad Flanagan was excellent for the visitors in their 3-3 draw at Everton.

Gerrard told the Liverpool Echo: "He's a Liverpool fan like myself so I know what it meant to him to come into a derby and finish as our man of the match by a mile.

"He was on the front foot, he was aggressive. He did exactly what the manager told him to do before kick off. He was brilliant.

"He's a local lad and you don't need to tell them what the derby means. He's known what to expect from an early age.

"All of the players gave him a round of applause when he came in the dressing room afterwards. He was sensational."
