Steven Gerrard believes billionaires likes Roman Abramovich and Sheikh Mansour played a role in his inability to win the Premier League.

The Liverpool legend left Anfield without getting his hands on the prized trophy and, speaking to EuroSport via ESPN, he said the money they pump into Chelsea and Manchester City every year made it difficult for teams on smaller budgets to compete.

However, the LA Galaxy midfielder did say he and his former teammates had to take some responsibility for the failure, and the ex-England captain believes he has a great chance of winning a first league title of his career in the United States.


In other news, Jurgen Klopp has admitted he may change things at Anfield in the January transfer window.

The German coach said he had made no decisions over transfer dealings but knows his players are aware they must prove their credentials leading into the new year.

The Reds have been linked with a number of players as the window approaches and with the Merseyside outfit seven points off the top four, additions are expected.


And finally, Jamie Redknapp believes Raheem Sterling will not be fazed by fans when the Reds face Manchester City on Sunday.

It will be the first time Sterling has come up against his former side since his £49 million move to the Etihad. 

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Redknapp said: “Raheem Sterling will get plenty of stick from Liverpool fans on Saturday - but I suspect he won't care in the slightest.
