The former Liverpool captain is looking forward to derby day
Steven Gerrard may no longer be Liverpool captain, but the Reds legend issued a rallying cry for his former team-mates ahead of their clash at Everton.
Brendan Rodgers’s side make the short trip across Stanley Park to face Roberto Martinez’s side in the first Merseyside derby of the season.
Gerrard was unable to inspire Liverpool to victory over the Toffees in his two final derbies, although the Reds are unbeaten in their last 10 games against their near neighbours.
And the 35-year-old midfielder posted a snap from the 1-1 draw at Anfield last season on his Instagram page accompanied by a little message for the Liverpool squad.
Gerrard wrote on the photo-sharing app: “Nothing better than derby day .. Let’s have it 😡💪👊⚽️”
Liverpool have won four of the last 10 Merseyside derbies, whilst the rest have finished in stalemates.
The Reds were 3-2 winners against Aston Villa last weekend at Anfield, whilst Everton edged to a 3-2 win against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.
