Gerrard: Four Cup Finals Left

Liverpool captain, Steven Gerrard, had an emotional outburst after his side's ‘biggest statement’ in the important 3-2 victory against title contenders, Manchester City.

On the day which marked the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster, the final whistle unleashed an emotional outpouring at Anfield and Gerrard was overwhelmed by tears for a moment.

"Emotional. Emotional, but we need to keep calm," Gerrard described his feelings after the match.

"There's still four big games to come but that meant so much especially when they got back into the game and you feared the worst at that point, but I think we showed today that we want to go to the wire, we want to go all the way.

"Nothing's won yet, but that was probably the biggest statement we've made so far.

"That was the longest 90 minutes I've probably ever played in. I kept flashing back to how long the clock was taking in cup finals and big games I've played in before but it felt like the clock was going backwards at some points of that game."

The Liverpool skipper insisted his side has ‘four cup finals left’ and they need to remain focused in their attempt to win the club’s first title since 1990.

"That is such a big result for us; we've got four cup finals left," Gerrard added.

"People said that (against Manchester City) was the biggest one but I disagree, I think the biggest one now is Norwich.

"We'll let other people comment and have opinions on whose it is to lose and who's in pole position - I'm sure they'll put whoever they want in the driver's seat. Nothing's ours yet."

When asked what he had said to his team-mates in an emotional huddle on the pitch at the end of the game, Gerrard joked: "None of your business!

"I think you know what I said to the players in that huddle. I think the important thing now is not to get carried away with that result. We need to stay calm, focused and worry about Norwich.

“We've got all week to prepare for the game against Norwich. We've got a day off tomorrow and then we go for Norwich."

Liverpool next travel to Norwich and then play another title decider against Chelsea at Anfield, followed by a trip to Crystal Palace and the final game against Newcastle at home.
