The Reds, fresh off a 5-1 demolition of Arsenal on Saturday, fell behind inside eight minutes in comical circumstances when Kolo Toure sliced Kieran Richardson’s cross into the back of his own net.
Brendan Rodgers’ men were able to steady after the early disaster and managed to draw level four minutes before the break when Gerrard played an inch-perfect through ball for Daniel Sturridge to run onto and net his 16th league goal of the campaign.
Just as it appeared that both sides would share the points, Cottagers defender Sacha Riether fouled Sturridge in the area in stoppage time which saw Gerrard step up and fire it past the outstretched hand of David Stockdale who had replaced the injured Stekelenburg.
