Gerrard warns Liverpool must win at Norwich
Saturday 29 September 2012
Steven Gerrard has urged his Liverpool teammates to go to Norwich City and come away with their first three points of the season, with the Guardian reporting the Reds captain as saying a draw is not good enough.
Liverpool are stuck in the bottom three of the early season table, without a victory in the league under new manager Brendan Rodgers. They have only two points, from draws with Sunderland away and Manchester City at home, and were beaten by Manchester United last time out through a controversial Robin van Persie penalty.
With home games to come against Stoke City and Reading after the visit to Carrow Road, Gerrard has warned that Liverpool have to start picking up maximum points sooner rather than later. He said: “We have a run of games coming up now where there are points we should be taking but the longer [not winning] goes on the more difficult it is going to get, so it is important against Norwich we take maximum points.”
Gerrard added that he believes Liverpool deserve more points than they currently possess thanks to the calibre of some of their performances, particularly at home. But the captain added that because they have dropped points in their home games, draws away from home - such as against Sunderland - can no longer be considered good results.
