Steven Gerrard says Liverpool winning the Premier League would help me get over the slip


Steven Gerrard's infamous slip against Chelsea in 2014 is seen as a turning point in that season's Premier League title race. 

After that 2-0 defeat on matchday 36, the Reds then went on to draw with Crystal Palace and hand Manchester City the trophy on the final day. 

The 2013/14 campaign was the closest Gerrard himself ever came to winning the league and recently, the Anfield legend has opened up about just how much the slip has affected him since. 

"I think about it most days, a Liverpool team winning the league would help how I feel for sure," he said on The Greatest Game with Jamie Carragher, per Yahoo Sports.

"When I analyse it properly, I obviously understand it wasn’t just that moment [that cost Liverpool the title], but still part of me in my head thinks it is.

"People say to me to make me feel better: ‘It was over 28 games’, but I still know behind what you're saying to me that moment was so big.

Gerrard also admitted that Liverpool's Champions League win last season made him feel better - and that was a real healing moment for him. 

"When Liverpool won the Champions League, I was looking around the fans thinking: ‘They’re all happy again’, it made me feel better again," the Rangers boss continued. 

Gerrard says Liverpool winning the CL has helped him

"After Madrid, looking around they were all sad again, but the Champions League last year was a healing moment for me."

"I think winning the league would definitely play a part. And I think also my own personal stuff with Rangers, if I go on to have a successful season, I think that will help as well.

"That was a f*cking tough moment, even tougher than what people probably think it was. The only time in a 20-year career I’ve been numb, like my body's felt numb." 

Gerrard says the slip was the worst moment of his career

It's fair to say Gerrard probably won't ever get over his infamous slip. There will always be something in the back of his mind that says: 'What if? What if I hadn't slipped that day?'

But, if Liverpool can finally win the Premier League under Jurgen Klopp, at least Stevie G will finally have some closure.
