Our captain will make appearance 707 for the Reds against Palace, while he’ll be on the hunt for goal number 184, having netted in each of our last two games – at home to QPR and away at Chelsea.
The 34-year-old joins LA Galaxy at the end of the season on an 18-month deal. However, he first must ready himself for an emotional farewell to the club where he has spent his entire adult life.
With our hopes of Champions League qualification having been all but ended last time out, Gerrard will be the full focus of Saturday’s game, which will otherwise have a very end-of-season feel about it.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s game, he said: “It’ll be strange, I’m sure it will. It’ll be an emotional day for me and my family and friends that have followed me throughout my career.
“And also for a lot of supporters that have watched me for many, many years, not just at the stadium but around the world as well.
“I’m going to get the attention at the weekend, it’s not something I really like, but hopefully I can put in a good performance for the supporters so we can get a win and I can enjoy the send-off that I’m going to get.
“It’s going to be a difficult day but I’m going to try and enjoy it. I think at the moment where I am with a couple of games left to go I don’t really want to think about it too much.
“Everyone’s talking about it but for me I just want to stay focused on the remaining games and the training and sessions ahead.
“There’s plenty of time to be sentimental and emotional after the games are done but I don’t really want to listen to supporters being emotional face to face because I’m a little bit afraid of breaking down and showing too much!”
Gerrard will finish his Liverpool career with a trip to the Britannia Stadium a week on Sunday, where we face Stoke City.
