Liverpool defender Carragher: Merseyside derby always biggest of season

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher says games against Everton are always the biggest of the season.

This weekend's clash takes on greater significance with both clubs chasing a top four finish.

"For me the derby is always the biggest game of the season and this is no different," Carragher told the Liverpool Echo.

"We've just got to make sure that we get three points and then we can start thinking about the games that follow on, as the race for the top four is getting pretty tight now.

"It changes from week to week and with teams around us dropping points, we've got to make sure we are in a position to take advantage.

"But we can't look too far ahead as we have got a big enough game of our own to deal with."
