Jamie Carragher Would Love To See Everton’s Ross Barkley Score Against Liverpool

Jamie Carragher has revealed he would love to see Everton youngster Ross Barkley score in Sunday’s Merseyside derby.

The Liverpool legend was giving his verdict on Roberto Martinez’s side in a Sky Sports preview ahead of the clash at Goodison this weekend.

And former Reds defender insists he enjoys watching young talent come through the ranks – regardless of what side of the divide they are on.

Carragher said: “I love to see local players playing, especially for my own club at Liverpool.

“But I loved seeing Wayne Rooney come through at Everton and Ross Barkley now, I love watching that lad play.

“He’s a brilliant player. When I watch him, even though Everton are a rival of Liverpool’s.

“Even in this derby game, I hope Liverpool win obviously, but I hope Ross Barkley plays well, maybe gets a goal.

“I love seeing players from my own city doing well whether it’s for Liverpool or Everton and I’m as delighted as Evertonian when I see a local player coming through for them as well.”

The ex-Anfield star also insisted that he feels the Toffees are going into Sunday’s match as favourites for the first time in a number of years.
