Yet another season is over for Liverpool. And their hope of winning the top-flight league title also went up in smokes. But unlike the previous seasons, the Anfield outfit had many positives despite stumbling in the final lap.
The match ended 4-3 in Liverpool`s favour, keeping the Reds in contention for the league title. The win gave enough reasons to celebrate for the Anfield crowd. Besides that, they have also got the real take-away from the match. Respect and honour, from one of their own who now represents another team, another colour and another set of fans.
Liverpool kept their top-four ambitions alive with a dramatic 3-2 victory over Fulham on Wednesday, but match-winner Steven Gerrard acknowledged they cannot afford to keep giving away goals if they want to play in Europe next season.
