Leiva: Liverpool local pair making sure we're up for derby

Lucas Leiva says Liverpool's foreign players realise the importance of their derby double-header next week.

"It is always a massive game against Everton," Lucas told

"The preparation for a derby game is always different, especially with Stevie and Carra around. We can see in their faces how much they want to win this game and that inspires us.

"We know how important these games are for the club and the supporters as well. We want to stay at the top of the Premier League and we want to progress in the FA Cup so we don't need any motivation.

"It is good we can play them both at Anfield with our supporters behind us and it gives us a lot of confidence, so we have to try to make sure we win.

"Always the derby is a difficult game and it is also a different game. We had a good win at Everton earlier this season so we know what we need to do.

"These are two massive games and we have to be ready."
