Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard believes that "fantastic" Raheem Sterling will produce vital performances in Merseyside derbies in the future.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard believes that youngster Raheem Sterling will have a "major impact" on future Merseyside derbies.

The 17-year-old experienced his first fierce derby at Goodison Park on Sunday, where his side played out a 2-2 draw with Everton.

"I thought Sterling was fantastic," Gerrard told the Liverpool Echo. "At 17 years of age, playing away in a derby, in a cauldron and an atmosphere like that against a big, physical long-ball team, he was outstanding.

"I don't think the Everton players would have known much about Raheem Sterling before Sunday. But I think they will be seeing an awful lot of him in the future. He will be playing in many Merseyside derbies and he will have a major impact on them."

Sterling has become a regular inclusion in the first team this season under new manager Brendan Rodgers.
