"We've been threatening that sort of scoreline for a while," Gerrard told liverpoolfc.tv. "We've had a lot of chances in games without being clinical but today we were.
"Having said that, we could have had more and the disappointing thing at half time was that we hadn't scored more goals. We could have been three or four up but they have a world class goalkeeper and full credit to Shay for some of the saves he made today.
"That's our only disappointment after the game, that the scoreline could have been more emphatic. That's the standard we have at Liverpool. We don't milk results, we always look for the positives and the negatives. There weren't many negatives today, but we could have had a few more goals."
