Raheem Sterling, Jose Enrique and Jamie Carragher all took to Twitter shortly after Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Leicester City on Tuesday night, whilst Steven Gerrard told teammates to stay focussed.
Captain Gerrard was back in the starting line-up after being rested for Saturday’s 1-0 win over Stoke City and he says the team are finally moving in the right direction.
“The performance was very good,” he told BT Sport after the game. “We didn’t get off to the start we wanted, but over the last couple of weeks we have shown great resilience and great character.
“We showed it again tonight. It could have been more than 3-1. I think all of us deserve a lot of credit. The last three performances have been superb and we need to keep trying to improve on that. It was a great team performance and a great three points.”
Another step in right direction…another 3 points!!!

The 34-year-old added, “I’m happy with the goal but even more pleased with the win. It has been well documented this season that we haven’t been good enough.
“But we are on our way up; we’re defending better, sticking together and we’re a lot harder to beat. We need to keep moving in that direction.”
