Gerrard vows to beat Chelsea to give rivals Man U title boost

Posted By: Staff

London, Apr 27 (ANI): Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has vowed to give bitter rivals Manchester United a massive Premier League title boost by beating Chelsea on Sunday.

Gerrard said Liverpool will not roll over, even if it hands United a fourth straight Premier League crown.

"We have a couple of games left and the idea is to take maximum points and see if we can get into the Champions League through the back door," The Sun quoted him, as saying.

"If we take maximum points, who knows? The teams above us might slip up. All we have done is keep the pressure on. We won't give up but it would be stupid of me to say this or that is going to happen - it's important to be realistic.

"We are underdogs for fourth position but our fans also know we've got Everton breathing down our necks and we certainly don't want them finishing above us," Gerrard said.

Kop fans know even a draw would make United, who play at Sunderland later in the day, favourites for a 19th title, one ahead of Liverpool. (ANI)
