Gareth Barry is hoping to continue his success at playing in derbies when Everton take on Liverpool next week. "I don't think too many can compete with the 6-1 for Manchester City at Manchester United. Or when Villa beat Birmingham 5-1, so I have had some fantastic scorelines in that respect," the midfielder, who is on loan from Manchester City, told the Liverpool Echo.
"If you win that (derby) game you can walk around the street with a big smile on your face, if you lose it you want to stay in the house for the next week or two.
"I'm really looking forward to the game. Derbies - wherever you are - are the fixtures that the fans look out for.
"The players get excited too, because they create special atmospheres.
"Having watched the Merseyside derbies over the years, I'm really looking forward to being part of one."
