Liverpool's Gerrard: We Should Have Won 3-0
Daily Mail, April 23rd, 2008 4:45PM



Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is adamant that his team can end Chelsea's unbeaten record at Stamford Bridge during next week's UEFA Champions League semifinal return leg. "We believe we can beat Chelsea on their own patch," he said. "We've gone to Inter Milan, we've gone to Arsenal and scored, so there is no reason why we can't do it at Stamford Bridge."

Gerrard added that Liverpool was the better team on the night. "We were the better team and created the better chances, I don't think Pepe [Reina] had anything to do apart from pick the ball out of the net at the end. Petr Cech pulled off two-three fantastic saves and we would have come off that pitch disappointed at 1-0 because it should have been a 3-0 victory."

Chelsea keeper Petr Cech agreed his team was fortunate to come away with a draw, but he said the result puts them in a good position to reach the final in Moscow on May 21. "On the last two times we played at Anfield, we didn't take our chances so this time we kept going right until the very end," he said. "Once you break through that barrier, though, you have a big chance to win the tournament and I am confident now we will go all the way."
