Digne played with Salah at Roma during the the 2015-16 season when the Frenchman was on loan at the Serie A side from Paris Saint-Germain.
Shortly after moving to Everton, Digne claimed he had turned down two approaches from Liverpool in the past, adding that his "I never walk alone" chest tattoo had nothing to with Everton's fiercest rivals.
But Digne is not anxious about matching up against his old team-mate, instead relishing the type of challenge he was looking for when he moved to the Premier League from the La Liga champions over the summer.
"I pulled Shaqiri on the way out in the mixed zone in Paris, ' said Carragher on the 'All Together Now" Everton podcast.
"Now everything is there: creativity, speed, good organisation; Coleman back and fit; Keane settled and fit; Mina, brilliant player, very important for the buildup; Digne, like the young Baines".
"This time also I can't say my individual one but my target now is to win something for the club".
"Sunday is another very big game for us". That's a proper squad, and in all leagues in Europe I'm 100 percent sure it would be a European team, for whichever competition.
"We need to turn up on Sunday and do our talking on the pitch".
At Anfield the stats are even uglier, as Everton have not managed a win in 19 years.

I don't even dare to have a shadow of a doubt. "But we have belief and faith that we can win", Pochettino said. Lloris told RMC Sport: " We need to at least repeat the Inter result to reach the next round ".
"The stats are here to change", Digne said.
"Football is like this and we need to change the past". That was a good result because we backed it up by winning the next game against Cardiff. We have a good mentality too and we work hard every week.
"I don't know if there's any explanation for that right now because I can't think of one, otherwise we should have used it already".
Jurgen Klopp has acknowledged Everton's improvement under Marco Silva ahead of the Merseyside derby, with Liverpool not expecting a "passive" game.
"We went to Chelsea to win and proved we can win".
"We are here to build something, to prepare our club and players to compete in every match, every time against these sides and not just on one day where you can have one good day".
"We can take confidence from the way we played at Chelsea".
The 25-year-old stressed that he and his Everton teammates will be unmoved by the reception from Liverpool supporters on Sunday. "I respect everybody. I have a lot of respect for everybody. I'm not a bit interested", he said.
