Liverpool FC: Gerrard ‘We lacked cutting edge’
Liverpool Skipper Steven Gerrard believes the goalless draw against Everton is another proof that Liverpool lacks that cutting edge to finish of teams.
The match ended in 0-0 draw with Liverpool struggling to turn their possession into clear-cut chances without top scorer Luis Suarez.
“We all wanted [a goal] at the end, mainly for this fella [Jamie Carragher] playing in his last derby. Everton have improved a lot. They’ve had a good season and are difficult to beat and that sums our season up in a way. We played well but lacked the cutting edge against the sides above us. We’ll take a point but we’re slightly disappointed it wasn’t three.”
Carragher who played his last derby also expressed disappointment to not to sign off with a win in his final game against Everton.
”It’s a fair result. It wasn’t to be and a draw was a fair result. There weren’t too many chances at either end. It was a tense derby if you like and credit to Everton. Coming to Anfield and getting a draw is a good result. I’m slightly disappointed but a fair result in the end I think. It was a good day. I’ve got a few games left with Liverpool. It was a big-game derby and I would have liked to have won it but ultimately we didn’t lose.”
