The captain of Liverpool, Steven Gerrard, has said that the Liverpool players need not to panic and should keep themselves calm and composed. Gerrard gave this statement while talking to the reporters after the match against Manchester United.
Liverpool were defeated by United in that match by a close margin of 2-1, which was predicted by one of the liverpool fanzines. The Liverpool team was playing on its home ground, but, Brendan Rodgers’ boys disappointed the home fans.
There was a huge excitement among the fans of both the clubs regarding this match. More than 44,000 people were in the Anfield Stadium to watch this high profile encounter.
Manchester United continued its winning streak and won its fourth Premier League match in a row.
On the other hand, Liverpool’s poor run continued as the team lost its third match in the ongoing Premier League. Liverpool is currently at the 18th position in the points table with only two points in five matches. But, Steven Gerrard believes that there is no need to panic too much as the team can still make a comeback in the competition.
In the post match press conference, the Liverpool skipper said, “It was always going to be a tough match for us keeping in mind the current form of Manchester United. They are a great team and some of the United players are in the form of their life at the moment.”
“But, you can’t hide your mistakes by crediting your opponent. We obviously made some mistakes and that’s why we lost the match. We badly need to win some matches, but, we can do that only if we keep ourselves composed.”
“If we get panicked too much, we would struggle in the upcoming matches as well. There are still quite a lot of matches to be played and the team is good enough to make a comeback”.
Liverpool will now take on West Bromwich Albion on 26th of September at The Hawthorns.
