Liverpool 2 QPR 1: Steven Gerrard eyes final Anfield goal
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard hopes his winner against QPR won't be his last at Anfield
Steven Gerrard is still hoping to score another Anfield goal before the end of his Liverpool career after the midfielder bagged a late winner against Queens Park Rangers.
The Reds appeared to be heading towards another disappointing result after QPR midfielder Leroy Fer cancelled out Philippe Coutinho’s first-half opener on Merseyside.
However, Gerrard headed a 87th-minute winner past Rob Green to seal three points before the Liverpool captain was replaced by Brazil international Lucas Leiva.
The 34-year-old, who is set to join Major League Soccer outfit LA Galaxy in the summer transfer window, reflected on what could be his final goal in front of the Anfield crown.
Gerrard told BBC Sport: “We have one more game to go here at Anfield and I will do my best to get on the score sheet. If that is my last goal at Anfield then I will take it but I won’t give up.”
Liverpool are four points behind fourth-placed Manchester United, who play against West Bromwich Albion in Saturday’s late kick-off at Old Trafford.
Gerrard urged Brendan Rodgers’ side to keep the pressure on Louis van Gaal’s side heading into the final three games of the season.
“It was a good three points, we have to stay strong till the end and keep pressure on the teams above us,” Gerrard added.
