Phil Neville will relish the reception he knows will be reserved for him by Liverpool fans when he leads Everton out at Anfield for their Barclays Premier League derby on Monday night.
The Everton captain is well aware - not just from his days at Goodison Park but his previous experience as a Manchester United lynchpin - that he can expect a torrid time at the hands of the Reds.
"It's something I really enjoy - if they didn't do that I'd be worried," he told his club's official website, www.evertonfc.com.
"I love the atmosphere of Liverpool-Everton games. It's one of the things that drew me to the club."
Neville is enthused too by the war of words between his old boss Sir Alex Ferguson and Liverpool's Rafael Benitez, over the United manager's treatment of referees.
He sees Ferguson as a past master in such circumstances, and believes English football is all the better for the managerial spats in which it seems to specialise.
"I think these things are absolutely brilliant for football - it's what sets our league apart from any other league in the world," added Neville.
"You don't see Spanish La Liga managers doing things like that.
"It's fantastic viewing from the outside and it's going to be a fantastic end to the season, I'm sure."
