Sterling: Merseyside Derby Is Our Biggest Game

Raheem Sterling says that the Merseyside derby means more to them than any other fixture in the calendar season.

Sterling had his first taster of derby day on Merseyside in October as the two teams battled out a 2-2 draw and although he has been taken out of the first team since then admits he would relish the opportunity to experience the derby at Anfield.

Sterling told Sky Sports, "People say the Man Uniteds and the Arsenals are big games but when it comes to Everton, they are the biggest because we're obviously from the same city and both sets of fans are rivals.

"When I played at Goodison, it was one of the best experiences I've ever had.

"It's just the passion from both sides of the city. Obviously the red side is the one that we want to win, but the passion from both sides and the players is one of the best things you'll ever see in the game."
