Steven Gerrard dreaming about Liverpool FC Premier League title triumph
The Liverpool skipper looking to help Reds stay top when his team go to Upton Park on Sunday
April 4th, 2014
Despite being regarded as one of the greatest players in top flight history, Steven Gerrard has never won a Premier League title and this season represents his best ever chance of bucking that trend.
Liverpool sit top of the table and have six games remaining, with victory in all of them ensuring that the Merseyside club pip Manchester City and Chelsea, thus bringing home the league title for the first time in over 20 years.
Gerrard has played down title talk until now, although he has admitted that the prospect of winning the league is something he’s dreaming about, having previously won the Champions League, UEFA Cup, FA Cup and League Cup with the Reds.
When the midfielder was asked whether he was dreaming about winning the title, he said: “I think I’d be a liar if I said no.
“It is flashing in and out of my mind from time to time, but I am trying to get it out as quick as it is going in because nothing has been achieved yet.
“It is important for myself and the players to try to not forget about the dream but try to park it up, as dreams only happen when you get the job done and there are six hard matches still to play.”
West Ham on Sunday represents a difficult fixture, with Andy Carroll lining up for the Hammers against his former club and sure to pose a few aerial problems for his ex-team-mates.
“Nothing changes, we don’t worry about Manchester City, Chelsea, Palace, Norwich or Newcastle – we worry about beating West Ham,” Gerrard told LFC TV. “We approach it how we’ve approached the last eight games.
“We have an unbelievable mentality, winning attitude, and we always know if we work hard for each other and do the ugly bits which players don’t like doing all the time, we know the nice stuff will come out.
“We have been playing at a pace which is difficult for opposition teams to cope with, but it all starts with sticking together. It is the manager’s way. Everyone has taken it on board and put it into practice.
“I remember us finishing the last six months of last season very consistently and we took that into this year. We had a good pre-season and from day one the form has been consistent, but of late we’ve taken it to another level.
“The run we are on is superb and it is a credit to everyone in the squad.”
