After a scintillating 90 minutes at Anfield yesterday afternoon, Liverpool's captain gave a passionate plea to his players to continue their outstanding winning run.
Steven Gerrard, 33, saw his side edge out title rivals Manchester City 3-2 in the most anticipated league game of the season. And with four games left, the England skipper will hope his experience can lead them to a 19th Premier League title, with his team having won their last 10 games. The Liverpool captain has personified the character of his beloved football club this season, and his know how in the toughest league in the world is one reason why he may well lift the trophy.
"You always know with the character in this squad, that we're always going to fight until the end. We did on Sunday and we got out noses in front," Gerrard told Liverpool's official website.
The other reason is the way he organises his squad as seen clearly at Anfield yesterday, both in front and behind him on the pitch.
"I think it was the best we've played all season, the biggest statement we have made. The way we blew the so called best team in the league away for the first 30-35 minutes, it could have been 3 or 4."
Despite failing to add to their tally of 49 in the last two games, Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez's finishing with the talismanic number eight sat feeding the two forwards is another key factor in their quest to end the 24 year wait for England's ultimate prize. Gerrard has 10 assists this season in the league.
"It's great to play with so many top players. I've had so many ups and downs but at the moment, I'm loving every minute of it.
"I feel 21 again, playing with all of these top players! It's going to be the biggest month of my career coming up and I'm going to give it everything I've got." said Gerrard.
Although the biggest mark on his CV will (most likely) have been the failure to lift the Premier League trophy if this season peters out, Gerrard has won club football's other biggest prize: the Champions League. In my mind it's this winning feeling that will help Liverpool propel to the finish line. The 35-yard last gasp strike against West Ham in the FA Cup final in 2006 and the header against AC Milan in that famous night in Istanbul nine years ago are both examples.
"I'm lucky, I've experienced these scenes before in 2005 and 2006. Some of the foreign lads were blown away by it all, we want the same for our last couple of home games," Gerrard continued.
"The message is to stay calm and keep going, there are still four cup finals left."
