Steven Gerrard bullish over top four chances
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard believes he can still get better this season and that a top four finish isn’t beyond his side.
Gerrard has been in fine form recently and was influential in helping his side to three victories out of four in the league over the festive period, and he is confident that he can still lead the Reds to a Champions League place this season.
“I’m confident that come the end of the season I will be satisfied with myself and the team because I do believe we can finish the season really strong.” Gerrard said of his sides chances to ESPN.
The 32-year-old has played every minute of every league game so far this season for manager Brendan Rodgers, however he admits his form has had it’s ups and downs, saying:
“I’ve had mixed experiences this season.”
“I’ve passed some unbelievable landmarks for club and country, getting to the 600-games mark and winning my 100th cap for England.”
“I’ve played well in some games but I’ve been disappointed with myself in others and I’m not happy with my goal tally at the moment.”
Gerrard also hailed the return of defensive midfielder Lucas, and how it allows him more freedom to get forward.
It is no surprise that Liverpool’s recent improvement in form has coincided with Gerrard’s own return to as close his best as we have seen for some time.
They will hope their skipper can continue in this vein to ensure that 2013 is a more successful year than 2012 was at Anfield.
