Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard admits it is proving difficult to control his emotion as the Reds edge closer to the title

Steven Gerrard admits it is difficult to control his emotion as Liverpool edge closer to a first-ever Premier League title.

The 33-year-old Reds captain struck an emotional figure after Liverpool were 3-2 winners against Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday.

I have to manage the time well and make sure that I’m not wasting unnecessary energy

Gerrard delivered a rousing post-match speech in a huddle with Reds team-mates as Liverpool moved seven points clear of Citizens.

And Liverpool’s talismanic midfielder acknowledged that he needs to conserve his energy ahead of their final four games of the season.

“I’ve just got to stay calm, relax and take each game as it comes. I’m trying to do that but it’s difficult to control my emotion.

“In my spare time, I’m not sitting around thinking about it. I’m watching the TV, spending time with my kids and my friends to take my mind off it.

“I’d love to play the remaining four games in the next four days but it is not possible. I have to manage the time well and make sure that I’m not wasting unnecessary energy.”

Gerrard has scored 13 goals and 11 assists in 30 Premier League appearances.
