Steven Gerrard insists his slip against Chelsea back in the 2013-14 season still torments him as that memory would be there in his mind for a long time.
Gerrard couldn’t receive a pass from Mamadou Sakho and the ball came to Demba Ba who latched on to the loose ball and slot it coolly past the Liverpool custodian Simon Mignolet. Willian added another in the second half as it ended the Reds’ title hopes.
Manchester City took the advantage and raced their way to the title. This season too Liverpool are chasing City to fulfil their long quest of the Premier League title. A number of hiccups in the last few matches have dashed their hopes but with nine matches still to play the scenario could be different at the end of this season.
Gerrard said, “This wound has been open since my experience. I’m not sure it’ll close because I can’t change that experience.
“It doesn’t affect how I feel (about Liverpool) now. I look at a squad of players, some of whom I’m still friends with.
“I see a support that gave me absolutely everything from the terraces and around the world.”
