Steven George Gerrard is probably the single player out there who after all these years deserves to get his hands on the Barclay’s Premier League trophy and after last night’s match against Manchester City he may very well be on his way, the odds by Betfair.com were suggesting a tight and close game was on the cards and indeed it was as the game finished 3-2 to Liverpool.
It is a quite a weird situation for Gerrard, he did actually win the Champions League on that faithful night in Istanbul in 2005 but domestically the one trophy that he wants the most has eluded him altogether – the Premier League. It was no surprise than that after the game against City he was in tears and although in the following interview (video below) he is still cautious of Liverpool’s chances to win the league the truth is the destiny of the title is in their hands, if they win all their games the title is theirs,as simple as that.
Before yesterday’s game City had the upper hand with games in hands but now the only real threat is Chelsea, whom they will meet at Anfield soon and just like the Merseyside team the Blues also could win the league if they won all their games, which automatically means they would be denying Liverpool 3 points if they can pull off an upset at Anfield.
Gerrard however will be in confident mood, in days of old seeing Mourinho’s man coming over to Anfield would have been a daunting task and although Chelsea are no slouch this season, Liverpool are a totally different team now.The likes of Suarez, Sterling and Sturridge have been terrorising opposition defence all season long with Gerrard, Coutinho and Henderson providing steel and creative passes from midfield, this time around Chelsea will not have it easy and seeing as how they struggled to beat 10-man Swansea yesterday they may very well beat outclassed at Anfield.
It may also be a good thing for England seeing as Gerrard is the only England captain in recent memory to have not won a Premier League title. his peers and former England captains – Beckham, Terry, Lampard have all won the League and with the World Cup 2014 on the horizon England may very well benefit from Liverpool’s form this season.
The destiny of the title is in your hands Gerrard, step up and claim it.
