Gerrard: Liverpool Can Win the League

MOST COMMENTED

Steven Gerrard emphasized Liverpool’s title credentials while Wayne Rooney lamented one of the “worst days” of his Manchester United career after the Reds pummeled the reigning Premier League champion 3-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday. After the game, Liverpool captain Gerrard, who scored two penalties while missing a third from the spot, said: "We believe that we can win the league. I've come here many times and been played off the park. They are a fantastic team and this is one of the most difficult places to come to, so to come and dominate from start to finish and we are still going away disappointed that we didn't score more goals.”

The win reduced the gap at the top with league leader Chelsea to just four points, with Liverpool having played one game fewer. Gerrard added: "I said before the game it's going to be difficult [to win the title] and we need to take each game as it comes and just try to win them all. We will enjoy tonight but we need to move on very quickly because we know Cardiff [next] are going to be tough. I think we have shown out there that we are genuine contenders and we are going to fight to the end."

By contrast, United striker Rooney said, "It's like a nightmare. It's one of the worst days I've ever had in football. It's hard to take. You have to give Liverpool credit – they played well – but it's difficult to take. Nobody wants to lose, especially in this way, in your own stadium. It's not nice. We had a game plan for the second half, which went out the window when they got the second penalty so early on. It made it an uphill battle to come back.”
