Liverpool’s veteran captain Steven Gerrard reckons his side’s performance against Arsenal at the weekend is probably the best he’s ever been involved in, reports the Mirror.
The Reds obliterated the side who were top of the table before kick-off, and took a 4-0 lead within 19 minutes at Anfield – leaving the Gunners completely shell shocked.
Along with Coutinho and Luis Suarez, Gerrard was particularly sublime, and has lauded his side’s mesmeric performance.
“I am trying to think back of a performance – especially in the first half – that I can remember in the last 15 years,” said the midfield general, who excelled in his deep-lying anchorman role.
“Maybe one or two in the Champions League got close but that was as explosive as it gets. That is right up there. Yeah, in my career that’s definitely in the top three performances I have been involved in.
“You are talking about a side that is top of the league with world-class players, ones who are worth £42million; Jack Wilshere: one of the country’s big hopes. Cazorla – a World Cup winner.
“We have absolutely demolished a top team there from start to finish.”
Liverpool’s performance was so good that many are now tipping them as potential title contenders, although they will need to beat bottom of the table Fulham on Wednesday evening if they’re going to keep pace with the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City.
