Liverpool's Gerrard: Gaffer told us it was Cup final

Gerrard may have sent his team on their way with a goal after four minutes, but he insists all 11 players deserve the plaudits.

He told liverpoolfc.tv: "We made if difficult for ourselves and we were disappointed that it came down to the last game. We needed a big performance, one full of character and hard work. That's what we got. We are very happy with the performance.

"The most important words in the teamtalk were 'cup final'. When the manager says it's a cup final you know you've got to perform, and from the goalkeeper to the front men we did that.

"Every one of us did our job."
