Gerrard: Collective needed for cup glory

Published Add your comment

Finals tend to bring out the best in Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, but he insists if they are to beat Chelsea in the FA Cup at Wembley it will have to be a team effort.

The England midfielder was instrumental in the Reds' last appearance in the FA Cup showpiece, scoring twice and setting up the other in a triumph over West Ham in 2006. Gerrard was also a major reason for the remarkable comeback which secured Liverpool Champions League glory against AC Milan a year earlier.

However, the 31-year-old rejects the suggestion his team-mates have an over-reliance on him. He said: "I don't think so. We beat Everton in a massive game at Wembley (the semi-final) not so long ago and I didn't get the goals So we've certainly got players in and around the squad who can be match-winners."
