Liverpool have not been good enough, admits captain Gerrard
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has said the Reds have not been good enough in the Premier League this season, the Daily Mail has reported, as Kenny Dalglish’s side battle to secure a top seven finish after starting the campaign as Champions League hopefuls.
Gerrard said: “We know our league form hasn’t been good enough, particularly in the second half of the season, and we have to concentrate on getting it right and forget about Chelsea in the FA Cup final.”
Liverpool lost at Anfield on Sunday to a West Bromwich Albion side led by former Reds manager Roy Hodgson, with Peter Odemwingie grabbing the only goal of the game in the second-half after Liverpool had twice struck the woodwork. The result was Liverpool’s third home defeat of the season, the same number of reverses suffered on their own ground as third-place Arsenal, but Liverpool have drawn nine times at home to the Gunners’ three.
With four games of the season still to play Liverpool are eighth, two points behind Merseyside rivals Everton. Liverpool still have games against Norwich City, Fulham, Chelsea and, on the last day of the season, Swansea City, as well as the Wembley showpiece against Roberto Di Matteo’s Blues.
