Gerrard Emotional After City Win

MOST COMMENTED

Steven Gerrard was close to tears following Liverpool’s “emotional” 3-2 win against Manchester City on Sunday, which he described as his team’s “biggest statement” in the Premier League title race so far. "It was emotional, very emotional," the Liverpool captain said after the game. "But we need to keep calm. There are still four big games to come but that meant so much. They got back into the game and you fear the worst at that point, but I think today we showed that we are going to go to the wire. We are going to go all the way. Nothing has been won yet but that was the biggest statement we have made so far."

Liverpool began the game brightly, jumping out to a 2-0 lead midway through the first half thanks to goals from Raheem Sterling and Martin Skrtel, only for City to respond through a pair of David Silva-inspired goals early in the second half. With 12 minutes still to play, the game looked to be headed for a draw, until a botched clearance from City captain Vincent Kompany landed right in the path of Philippe Coutinho, who coolly slotted home the winner.

Liverpool is now firmly out on its own in first-place following Sunday’s win with just four games left to go in the season. Second-place Chelsea, which won 1-0 at Swansea, is just two points behind, while third-place City is seven points behind but with two games in hand. Liverpool will be without Jordan Henderson for its next game at Norwich after the midfielder received a straight red card for a late challenge on Samir Nasri.
