GERRARD STILL BELIEVES
Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard has said that he is hopeful that the club will be able to win the Premier league title under the guidance of the new manager Brendan Rodgers, who has attempted to change the philosophy and the style of football at the club. The former Swansea manager has arrived with a reputation of playing attacking football. Even though Liverpool suffered a 3-0 defeat on the opening day of the season, they have improved a lot in the recent 2-2 draw with the current champions Manchester city. Speaking after the match, Steven Gerrard said that he hopes that the new style of football will be a huge hit at Anfield.
Despite having lifted every major trophy with Liverpool during his glittering career, Steven Gerrard has been unable to lift the Premier league title. Gerrard had the opportunity to join Chelsea back in 2005, which would have given him the opportunity to lift the league title. However, he decided to stay with Liverpool and hopes that the club will be finally able to lift the league title since lifting it back in 1990. During this period, the club has also seen Manchester United overtake their record of 18 league titles.
“I don’t think we’re miles away. We have to be realistic and we finished eighth in the league last year, but we got to two major cup finals which shows that we are a good team and we can compete with anyone on our day. If we find a better level of consistency at the club, I think we can find ourselves higher up the table than last year,” Gerrard told Sky Sports News. Gerrard was one of the much improved players from the opening day defeat at the hands of West Brom. Liverpool will be facing Arsenal in the next Premier league match.
