Steven Gerrard: Four wins will get Liverpool FC back on track
Sep 20 2010 by Dominic King, Liverpool Echo

STEVEN GERRARD today insisted a four-match winning spree would provide Liverpool with the perfect antidote to their Old Trafford heartbreak.

The Reds suffered the second Premier League defeat of the Roy Hodgson era as they slipped to a 3-2 defeat against a Dimitar Berbatov-inspired Manchester United.

But Roy Hodgson’s men have two Premier League games, a Europa League match and a Carling Cup tie in the next 13 days and the captain wants to see Liverpool pass every assignment.

“What’s done is done and all we need to talk about now in the next few days is the games we have got coming up,” said Gerrard.

“We’ve got a League Cup game against Northampton and that competition is very important to us before we play Sunderland next Nobody will be sulking because we want to make sure that we go into the next international break next month having won all our games.”

There was a sense of ‘what if’ amongst Liverpool’s players and supporters as they reflected on yesterday’s scoreline, given the astonishing turnaround in the second period.

After trailing 2-0, Gerrard scored a penalty and a free-kick to help his side restore parity but he was left demoralised by the sloppy manner of Berbatov’s crucial hat-trick goal.

“It is a question of learning from mistakes,” added Gerrard. “It’s not important who holds their hands up.

“We have got to defend better as United and (Manchester) City have both scored three against us.”

While Alex Ferguson claimed the scoreline was “a travesty” after Liverpool had got back on level terms, Gerrard saw things in a different light.

He was encouraged by the manner in which Liverpool kept possession throughout and was hoping they would push on to grab a winner themselves after wrestling the momentum away from United.

Unfortunately, things worked out differently but Gerrard feels Howard Webb had a significant influence on the outcome.

The referee only booked John O’Shea after the United defender – who was last man – hauled down Fernando Torres for the free-kick from which Gerrard scored.

O’Shea then provided the cross for Berbatov to complete his treble and it was not lost on Gerrard.

“When you lose to Manchester United, you are always going to be disappointed but I thought it was an unfair scoreline when we were two goals down,” he said.

“If you look at the game as a whole, our possession was very good and it was heartbreaking to come away with nothing after getting back into it.

“One of the reasons for that is because Berbatov is in a great run of form and you have to give him credit for the second goal he scored – only a few players in the world could have done what he did.

“But you need the big decisions in the big games to go for you as well and I think the referee got it wrong. If he gives the foul (on Torres), then he has to give the red card but it’s ifs and buts, isn’t it? We have just to make sure we move on quickly.”

I made the people happy for a while
