Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard had words of support for John Arne Riise after his own goal in last night's 1-1 draw with Chelsea in the first-leg of their Champions League semifinal.

He said: "These ties are decided on small details and Chelsea have had a bit of luck here at the end, but maybe we'll get that luck at Stamford Bridge. This team wins, loses and draws together.

"It's the second leg of the European Cup semi-final - if you can't motivate yourself for that you shouldn't be playing football."
