Liverpool star Gerrard mocked by Manchester City fans

Published 14 Comments

Liverpool legend and captain Steven Gerrard found himself on the receiving end of some harsh mockery from Manchester City fans last night as Manuel Pellegrini's side thrashed Aston Villa to reinforce their status as heavy title favourites heading into the final match of the season.

There were joyous scenes at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday, and, as reported by The Metro, one particular young City supporter made headlines with a rather cruel banner - which can be seen above - that depicted Gerrard slipping over with the Premier League trophy notably falling from his grasp.

Captioned 'Caution. We must not let it slip', the banner is an obvious reference to Liverpool's unfortunate plight since they recorded an enthralling 3-2 win over Manchester City at Anfield last month.

Following that win, Gerrard gave a passionate speech to his teammates about how they must not slip up heading into their final fixtures of the 2013/14 campaign.

Such words came back to haunt the England stalwart, however, with Gerrard's now infamous slip in the 2-0 defeat to Chelsea allowing Demba Ba to score for Jose Mourinho's men on Merseyside.

Liverpool's grip on the title - which would have been their first for almost 25 years - was further loosened at Selhurst Park on Monday night, with a quite superb second-half fightback from Tony Pulis' resurgent Crystal Palace securing a 3-3 draw.

Heading into the final day of the season, Liverpool now must beat Newcastle and hope that West Ham can secure an unlikely victory in Manchester.
