GERRARD ON A HIGH AFTER DERBY WIN
By Football Talk.
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard claims he and his team mates are on a high after beating Merseyside rivals Everton on Saturday. Liverpool won the match 1-0 despite playing with 10 men for the majority of the game, and Gerrard has praised his teams efforts.
The Red’s have been in good form in the Premier League recently and Gerrard has urged his team mates to push on to secure a place in the top four, starting at Arsenal on Wednesday:
You always enjoy beating your local rivals but it was the way we did it that was really satisfying, particularly after losing a man after half an hour, Gerrard told the Liverpool Echo.
I thought we showed fantastic character, a great attitude and I also thought we played some decent stuff at times. I thought it was a fully deserved win.
You could see what it meant to everyone on the pitch at the end and it was the same again in the dressing room afterwards; everybody is still on a high.
Now we have got to take that high into the next game. It’s a tough one, Arsenal away always is. But we have used beating Everton as a platform in the past and we’ve got to do it again. We want to extend our run and go on to better things.
