Gerrard hailed the â€śbottleâ€ť shown by Kenny Dalglishâ€™s side after they fought back from a goal down to clinch a 2-1 win over the Blues.
â€śWeâ€™re relieved to get through but weâ€™ve won nothing yet,â€ť Gerrard said.
â€śWeâ€™ve won a semi-final but the big game is going to be the final now. Itâ€™s going to be a difficult game and we need to finish the job off.
â€śThere was a lot of pressure on the team with us playing against our big rivals. It was disappointing to go a goal down but we all stuck together.
â€śWe showed what character and what bottle this squad has got to respond and get the win.
â€śTo be a goal down against Everton is a very difficult situation but we showed what we are all about. We all rallied around and proved we are a good team. We could have won the game even more comfortably with the chances we created in the second half.â€ť
