Arsenal win can kick-start Liverpool’s season, says Steven Gerrard
Steven Gerrard reckons Arsenal win could provide timely boost for Liverpool
Steven Gerrard believes victory over Arsenal could kick-start Liverpool’s disappointing season.
The Reds face Arsene Wenger’s men at Anfield on Sunday after Brendan Rodgers’s side avoided a potential banana skin to beat Bournemouth 3-1 in the Capital One Cup quarter-final on Wednesday.
If we can get a big result against Arsenal and build on this, then I think we can turn it around
And Liverpool captain Gerrrard, who is yet to put pen to paper on new contract, is hopeful that three points this weekend could provide the Reds with a much-needed spark.
“We made mistakes against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday and we got punished by world-class players,” Gerrard told the Daily Mail.
“The first half against Bournemouth was probably as close as we’ve come to last season’s standards.
“It’s been tough to perform of late because we haven’t played well as a team, but if we keep giving everything we’ve got then I’m sure the good days are not too far away.
“If we can get a big result against Arsenal and build on this, then I think we can turn it around.”
