Manchester City denies increasingly rapid Pep Guardiola rumors
They got off to a hot start as John Terry scored a goal only five minutes into the game, but Steven Gerrard tied the game shortly before halftime with a goal of his own.
After Gerrard scored his goal and made his way to the bench, he received a standing ovation from both Chelsea and Liverpool fans.
However, Gerrard wasn’t having any of it from the Chelsea fans as he pointed out that they had previously treated him poorly.
Gerrard was a target to be signed by Chelsea at one point, and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho spoke on the Blues’ opponent.
“To get an ovation at Stamford Bridge is special for Steven Gerrard, we have lots of respect for the top guys. I will miss him,” the Blues manager said to ESPN FC.
Mourinho was referring to the fact that Gerrard will no longer play for Liverpool since he is on track to join the MLS and play for the Los Angeles Galaxy.
This means it was Gerrard’s last match against Chelsea, and the 34-year-old will be hard to replace for Liverpool due to his experience and leadership.
