Gerrard admits to mixed emotions following draw

Steven Gerrard was pleased to mark his return to the Liverpool starting line-up with a goal, but admitted that he and his teammates were disappointed not to beat Manchester United on Saturday, according to Liverpoolfc.tv.

Gerrard’s well-executed free-kick gave the Reds the lead on 68 minutes, but the visitors left with a point thanks to a close-range header from substitute Javier Hernandez with nine minutes remaining.

“It was almost the perfect way to mark my return to the team,” said the Liverpool skipper. “To be leading against Manchester United with ten minutes to go, the lads are a bit gutted we didn’t hang on and take maximum points.

“But they are a very good side and very dangerous, so we’re happy with the point. It’s a point gained rather than two lost.”
