Gerrard looks to move straight on

Published Add your comment

Skipper Steven Gerrard and young team-mate Lucas have led the call for a vastly improved Liverpool display when they face Chelsea on Sunday in a key Barclays Premier League clash.

The Stamford Bridge showdown will be Liverpool's first match since their dreadful Champions League display on Tuesday, when they lost 2-0 away to Fiorentina.

"We need to get the defeat in Florence out of our system quickly, because we have a massive game now at Chelsea on Sunday," said Gerrard.

"What we need is to produce a reaction from this defeat at Stamford Bridge, that has to be the aim now."

Lucas agreed with his captain, saying: "We must learn from these mistakes and bounce back at Chelsea, we must win there before the international break to boost our confidence.

"Chelsea are in good form at the moment, certainly at home, but we know we can do it if we go there with the right attitude.

"We have the quality to get a win there, that will then improve our confidence in the next two games in the group against Lyon."
