Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard was left delighted, after seeing his side beat Stoke City 5-3 in an entertaining game at the Britannia on Sunday, Sky Sports has reported.

The Reds skipper was on the scoresheet which saw his side win the eight-goal thriller, ending a winless streak against their opponents.


Gerrard’s penalty and goals from Daniel Sturridge, Luis Suarez (2) and an own goal from Ryan Shawcross meant that Liverpool finally tasted victory in the Premier League for the first time at Stoke in 29 years.


The victory put the Reds back to fourth leaving captain Gerrard in no doubt of the importance of the win.


“It's big. Our record against Stoke in the league is poor away from home and we wanted to put that right today. I thought we showed tremendous character," Gerrard told Sky Sports.


"It's results like this we need if we want to finish in the top four.”


Liverpool had taken a two goal lead in the first half, but were pegged back by goals from former players Peter Crouch and Charlie Adam.


But Gerrard’s early penalty in the second half set his side up for the rest of the game as they eventually proved too strong for their opponents.


He added: “The first 40 minutes we controlled the game. It was very comfortable then we went a bit soft, made a couple of mistakes, and it became a real tough game from then on.”


Liverpool had previously only managed to score twice against Stoke at the Britannia in five meetings, losing three and drawing twice.
