The 34-year-old is now playing MLS side LA Galaxy, but seems to be keeping a keen eye on developments at Anfield. The Merseyside outfit lost 3-1 to their fierce rivals on Saturday, struggling to trouble the Red Devils outside of a Christian Benteke wonder goal.
“I’m still a bit dejected from the performance and the result,” said Gerrard, “It’s still a bit raw but you have to understand the bigger picture. It’s still early on in the season, we’re on the back of two poor performances and results.
“But there’s still a lot of time to recover and with the fixtures we’ve got coming up hopefully we can take six points and start mending that damage. I was expecting a big reaction from the West Ham performance and it never came until the second half. When you play the big teams it’s too late.
“You can’t afford afford to react in the second half.”
The defeat has left the Anfield-based side with seven points from their first five games of the season. Alongside the lack of points has been a string of poor performances that hasn’t given fans much hope of qualifying for the Champions League.
After spending big in the summer, this has led to pressure on manager Brendan Rodgers. The Northern Irishman may be in danger of losing his job if the team doesn’t pick up some positive results in the near future, which may be more difficult than it looks on paper. With the Europa League starting, the squad will be stretched thinner than usual.
