Gerrard slams Liverpool performance for Sunderland defeat

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard says their defeat at Sunderland was "not good enough".

Gerrard admits there were "no excuses" for his side's display on Wearside.

"The players need to take responsibility for where we are in the league," Gerrard told the Liverpool Echo.

"It's just not good enough for a club like us to be there. We have to find a better level of consistency.

"We need a reaction and there's no better team to produce that against than Everton. It's important the players put in a performance and get a result for the fans. Everyone is a bit down after recent results but we want to put a smile back on their faces.

"It's a big week and we want to go into that Cup tie with Stoke on the back of a win."
