Anfield tears of joy in the air

Anfield imploded into fervent emotion as referee Mark Clattenburg's full time whistle blew in a dramatic Liverpool 3-2 win over title rivals Manchester City last Sunday.

Captain Steven Gerrard could not hold back and lashed out "We will not F****** slip" to his team as they grouped together for a celebratory huddle.

In a month that will not only be the "biggest" for the Reds skipper but also for millions of fans around the globe, Liverpool do not dare miss this opportunity laid down before them.

Another chance was laid down to them as Manchester City narrowly avoided a shock defeat at home to a desperate Sunderland, drawing 2-2 after Samir Nasri equalised with just minutes to go.

Another chance may not come again and Gerrard knows this more than anyone.  He will tear down anything in his way to get his hands on that Premier League trophy in May.

A win against Norwich City on Sunday was expected; but football being football and the Premier League being the Premier League, it was far from a formality.

The exact same will go for a rejuvenated Crystal Palace team who face Liverpool in the penultimate game of the season at Selhurst Park.

But like Gerrard said, there are four cup finals left; the most attractive and pivotal one coming between the two matches mentioned above: a home clash with second placed Chelsea on April 27.

Manager Jose Mourinho will already be planning how to beat the rampant Reds, and if anyone can, he can. But Anfield's You'll Never Walk Alone will be even louder come Chelsea, and fans even more expectant than they were against Manchester City.

All will be walking on with hope in their hearts that the Premier League trophy is presented to Gerrard in front of Anfield after three points against Newcastle United on May 11.
