Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard wiped away tears at the final whistle on what was an emotional day for everyone connected with Liverpool football. Anfield remembered the 96 fans who lost their lives in the Hillsborough disaster 25 years ago and Manchester City were beaten 3-2 at Anfield inspired by Liverpool’s Captain fantastic Steven Gerrard who was at his brilliant best in the middle of the park.
Gerrard told reporters after the match:
“Emotional. Emotional, but we need to keep calm. 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.”
Liverpool started the match with a spine-tingling rendition of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ and as said it turned out to be one of Liverpool’s greatest victories in Premier league. With four games to go lets hope the Reds can keep the momentum and lift the title.
