Liverpool skipper delighted at derby victory

Liverpool FC captain Steven Gerrard has expressed his delight patched with relief at the 1-0 derby victory over Everton in the English Premier League on Sunday.

The Reds now are fourth in the table and are the favourites to finish fourth in the Premiership at the end of the season. Stevie G says:

It was a big win and we knew how important this game would be for us.

Hopefully now we can continue to pick up wins until the end of the season and grab that fourth spot.

Credit to Everton they came back strongly in the second half – we couldn’t quite get that second goal which made it harder.

But we are winning games and you’re happy as long as you are winning. These games are also about bragging rights and I’m sure the supporters will be pleased.

We still have difficult games to go so it was important to get the result today.

So has Everton’s UEFA Champions League dreams for next season been wiped off? Seems so.
