Reds skipper not getting overly excited, despite morale-boosting win over Tottenham.
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has urged his Reds team-mates not to get too “carried away” after their 3-2 win over high-flying Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League at Anfield on Sunday.
The victory over the North Londoners was the first time this season that Brendan Rodgers’s side have managed to beat a team in the top six of the table, while it was also the first occasion that the Merseysiders have managed to win three matches on the bounce since the Northern Irishman replaced Kenny Dalglish at the helm last summer.
However, England international Gerrard wants his team to now concentrate on carrying on their good form since the turn of the year and take each game as it comes, with the Reds up to sixth place in the table, two points behind fifth-placed Arsenal, although having played a game more the the Gunners.
“It’s a big win for us,” Gerrard is quoted as saying by the Sun.
“With our performances against the top sides this season I think we’ve been very unlucky not to get a win.
“Our form is good but we can’t afford to get carried away just because we’ve beaten Tottenham.”
Luis Suarez handed Liverpool the lead at Anfield but a Jan Vertonghen double put Spurs in the driving seat.
The Reds hit back, however, with a goal from Stewart Downing before a late Gerrard penalty sealed all three points.
