Liverpool skipper should take one for the team

Steven Gerrard may intentionally get himself booked in order to avoid missing his side's top of the table clashes with Chelsea and Manchester City. 

Liverpool take on lowly Sunderland at Anfield tomorrow night, and a booking for the Reds captain would result in him missing the subsequent two games. Those two games would be against Tottenham and West Ham.

Gerrard has picked up seven bookings in his last ten appearances, so it is not unlikely that he will pick up a caution, and a booking in tomorrow's game would mean that he will be available for Liverpool's so-called bigger games.

If Gerrard doesn't get cautioned against the Black Cats but does see yellow against Tottenham then he will miss the Man City game. Should he manage not to get booked until the City game then he would miss his side's clash with Chelsea.  

The suggestion of a player getting booked on purpose is perhaps slightly controversial and could lead to the player being punished, should he be found guilty, but it would be rather naive to believe that such thoughts won't cross Gerrard's mind as he looks to guide his side to their first Premier League title.
