Steven Gerrard urges Liverpool to ‘keep their resilience going’ after Leicester success…
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has urged his teammates to ‘keep their resilience going’ – after making it back-to-back victories with a 3-1 win over Leicester City on Tuesday.
The official Liverpool website quotes the Reds captain, who inspired the win with a second-half goal, while he also played a role in Adam Lallana’s equaliser, and Jordan Henderson’s settler, after a Simon Mignolet own goal had given the Foxes an early lead.
“The performance was very good,” Gerrard reflected after the final whistle. “We didn’t get off to the start we wanted, but over the last couple of weeks we have shown great resilience and great character.
“We showed it again tonight. It could have been more than 3-1. I think all of us deserve a lot of credit. The last three performances have been superb and we need to keep trying to improve on that. It was a great team performance and a great three points.”
The midfielder added: “I’m happy with the goal but even more pleased with the win. It has been well documented this season that we haven’t been good enough.
“But we are on our way up; we’re defending better, sticking together and we’re a lot harder to beat. We need to keep moving in that direction.”
Gerrard was left on the substitutes bench for Saturday’s win against Stoke City, coming on with 15 minutes remaining to held the Reds to a 1-0 win. He returned to the team against the Foxes, proving that he still has plenty to offer, even at the age of 34.
