Liverpool hero Carragher: Everton bigger for me than Man Utd clash
He said: "When I was a kid I was a Blue and it doesn't matter what side you are the derby is the big one, always.
"Some will say the United game is but as a local lad, Everton is the biggest game of the season.
"And facing them on their own pitch with a packed crowd behind them - all the ingredients are there. Everything is against you and that makes it so special when you win."
