Steven Gerrard said he was more concerned with his standing ovation from Liverpool fans than Chelsea fans’ brief moment of respect during the Reds’ 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Gerrard scored Liverpool’s equaliser shortly before half-time after John Terry had given the home side an early lead. The result means the Reds are effectively out of the running for a top four finish this season.

With the 34-year-old just two games from the end of his Liverpool career, he was afforded a standing ovation from both sets of supporters as he was substituted off in the 79th minute.

He told Sky Sports shortly after full-time, “The Chelsea fans showed respect for a couple of seconds, but slaughtered me all game. It’s nice of them to turn up for once today.”

To mark the end of the 30-year wait for a league title, the ‘Liverpool Mishmash’ poster is available to order exclusively on This Is Anfield — the history of the Reds in one image!
