Gerrard: We're to blame for slump

Published Add your comment

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has called for the players to do more to lift the side out of their current slump.

The Reds lost a third consecutive league match at Sunderland on Saturday - the first time that has happened since 2003. It has left them in seventh, just two points ahead of Everton ahead of Tuesday's Merseyside derby at Anfield.

"The players need to take responsibility for where we are in the league," Gerrard said. "It's just not good enough for a club like us to be there. We have to find a better level of consistency. We need a reaction and there's no better team to produce that against than Everton."
