Gerrard: Treat Norwich Like 2005 Champs League Final

Liverpool captain, Steven Gerrard, has warned his side they must treat the next game against Norwich like the 2005 Champions League final against AC Milan.

The Reds 3-2 win over Manchester City leaves the title race in Liverpool’s own hands but Gerrard insisted they have to remain calm and focus on Norwich.

"We have to focus and prepare for Norwich now - we have got to treat it like it is the last game of all our careers. That is the mentality," the 33-year-old said.

"We have got to forget where we are and forget what we have done. Man City was always going to be huge because they are in the race with us but Norwich now become Man City.

"Norwich become Chelsea. Norwich become Manchester United. That's how big it is. We have got to treat Norwich like we treated AC Milan in 2005. That's just how football is. We can't think about what colour shirts Norwich are wearing and the personnel in them. We have got to treat them like the best team in the world."

Liverpool have picked up ten successive victories, but Gerrard insists this run could mean nothing, if they don’t win their first title since 1990.

"It is a remarkable run, but you get nothing for it," he added.

"You get a pat on the back. What is key as a footballer is getting something to show for all the hard work. We have been on a magnificent run. We could win 13 on the spin but lose the last one and we won't get nothing.

"Nobody will remember it. The only way people will remember it is if we go on and win it."

Liverpool next play Norwich away, then welcome title contenders, Chelsea, at Anfield, before they travel to Crystal Palace and finish the season against Newcastle at home.
