Liverpool star Stevie G scored his 100th goal for the club against Stoke yesterday, and ref Andre Marriner even allowed Gerrard to celebrate for 30 seconds before cruelly dashing the metaphorical champagne from our hero’s lips.Marriner’s decision to disallow the goal was a hugely contentious one, especially as Liverpool eventually drew 0-0, so the goal would not only have represented Gerrard’s century, but a hearty three points. As it stands, the Anfield outfit had to settle for a highly unsatisfactory point.
However, as cheesy cliche merchants tend to say, every cloud has a silver lining and this one could come in the form of Gerrard’s 100th goal against the old blue enemy, Everton.
Next weekend’s Merseyside derby game would be the perfect stage for Gerrard to bag his 100th and considering that the Everton of this season have been more than generous in terms of conceding goals, it shouldn’t be too big an ask, should it?
