Merseyside derby a massive game, says Dalglish

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has described Tuesday’s Merseyside derby as a “massive game”, according to the the Liverpool Echo.

The Reds welcome Everton to Anfield on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Sunderland on Saturday, Liverpool’s third consecutive Premier League defeat. Everton, meanwhile, are on a run of nine games unbeaten in the league and FA Cup but in that same period Liverpool have claimed their first trophy in six years, winning the Carling Cup on penalties against Cardiff City.

Dalglish is quoted as saying: “For us it’s a massive game. We know how big it is and how much enjoyment the people get from winning it.

Liverpool have yet to record a home league victory in 2012, drawing with Stoke City and Tottenham Hotspur and losing to Arsenal. There have been home victories in the FA Cup, against Oldham Athletic, Brighton and Hove Albion and Manchester United.

Everton, who have not won at Anfield under David Moyes, have not tasted defeat since losing to Tottenham at White Hart Lane in January, drawing each of their away games at Aston Villa, Wigan Athletic and Queens Park Rangers.
