Everton fullback Baines dismisses revenge factor for Liverpool derby

Everton fullback Leighton Baines says revenge doesn't come into this weekend's derby against Liverpool.

The Toffees were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool at Goodison Park in November.

"I don't think there ever needs to be any added spice to a derby and I don't think there is any case for revenge," Baines told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"It's going to be a massive game for us and but it's one we're all looking forward to."

He added: "Everyone is just desperate to win. I don't think anyone involved or the fans care about performances.

"It's just the result, that's all that matters in a derby game."
