Steven Pienaar has picked Everton’s derby loss to Liverpool at Anfield last season as one of the worst defeats of his Toffees career.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard opened the scoring before Daniel Sturridge’s quick-fire brace and Luis Suarez’s 50th-minute strike sealed an emphatic 4-0 victory over Roberto Martinez’s side.

Brendan Rodgers’s men went on to finish as Premier League runners-up, whilst Everton missed out on a fourth-place finish and Champions League football, being pipped by Arsenal.

South African midfielder Pienaar added that a 6-1 loss to the Gunners in 2011 and losing the 2009 FA Cup final to Chelsea also count among the most painful defeats of his career.

Pienaar, 32, has scored 10 goals in 178 Premier League appearances during two spells at Everton.
