Carra: Gerrard Liverpool situation just like Man Utd legend Robson

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has likened Steven Gerrard's situation this season to Manchester United great Bryan Robson.

Carra explained in the Daily Mail: "There are parallels with his current situation to how it was for Bryan Robson at United in the early 1990s, a club captain who had enjoyed great success, led his country with distinction but had found the one honour he craved most of all frustratingly out of reach.

"Robson was still United's driving force when they mounted their first real assault on the title in 1991-92, but their quest to end a 25-year wait was shattered at Anfield when Liverpool won 2-0. Stevie could easily find himself in a similar position on Sunday.

"If Chelsea beat Aston Villa and Liverpool lose at Old Trafford, I feel a 10-point gap would be too difficult to overhaul, but Stevie is going into this make-or-break collision playing some of the best football of his career."
