Gerrard eyeing derby win for Carra

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard wants to give retiring team-mate Jamie Carragher a final Merseyside derby to remember this weekend.

  • Go To

The veteran centre-back will end his playing career later this month and turn his talents to television punditry. Everton have not won at Anfield since 1999 and Gerrard does not want their rivals to end that streak in Carragher's last cross-city encounter.

"I think being a local lad we feel the passion in the city," said the England captain. "Jamie will be playing at the weekend, he will be one of the first on the teamsheet and has been brilliant since he came back into the team. We're hoping to get a nice derby victory for Carra to remember because you will always remember your last derby."

Carragher will leave a huge hole when he retires, not only in the centre of defence but around the club itself, and Gerrard expects to feel that more than most.

"I'm going to miss him more than anyone. I'm close to Jamie on and off the pitch, " he told talkSPORT.

"It's an emotional time him packing it in but he is going on to Sky and I'm sure he'll do a fantastic job."

Liverpool head into the derby trailing sixth-placed Everton by five points with three matches remaining.

Defeat would ensure the Toffees finish higher in the table for the second successive season - something which has not happened since the Reds were promoted back to the top flight in 1962.
