Former Liverpool manager Roy Evans has reckoned that if anyone deserves to win a Premier League title then it's Anfield hero Steven Gerrard who has given so much to the club over the years.
Also, Evans praised Brendan Rogers who "reinvented" the Reds skipper as a defensive midfielder.
After Gerrard's heroics against West Ham when he hit two penalties, he took his tally to 14 goals for the season which is evidence of how good form he is in.
''Steven is in outstanding form,” Evans said in the Liverpool Echo. “To be honest, when he first went back into that position, I thought it was a bit of a waste. I wasn’t quite convinced and I don’t think Steven was himself early on.
“Since then he has grown and grown in that role and gone from strength to strength.
“He’s controlling games a lot more from there and he’s clearly enjoying it. He’s holding his nerve and we’ve seen that with all the penalties he’s stuck away.
“If anyone deserves to win the Premier League in his career then it’s Steven. He has given so much to the club over the years.”
Well, can he take the Reds will only be answered at Anfield, a place that hasn't witnessed a game of such intensity for, say, 25 years as Gerrard's men take on Manchester City on Sunday in a potential title decider.
Can Gerrard overcome his emotions? Can he overcome those painful Jon-Paul memories that he has endured since May 1989? Remember, he plays for "Jon Paul, his cousin, before for himself".
Can the Liverpool fans take it as a positive? Could this lead to Liverpool losing the title?
