Steven Gerrard has told the Liverpool Echo that the team need to show more bottle when facing Manchester United and Chelsea if they want to overcome the two sides.

“When we play them (United and Chelsea),” he said, “we’ve got to get the right balance between being organised and strong defensively, yet having the bottle to go and win. Going into these games negatively and too defensively, you can still lose, as we have done.

“Against Chelsea in the cups, we’ve done them more than they’ve done us, but in the league we have to be a bit more attack-minded to win.

“Over the last couple of years we’ve gone into games against United and Chelsea very organised tactically – defensive if you like – and still lost 1-0.

“Have the same sound defence and show more guts going forward, and it could be 1-0 to us.

“In these matches the first goal is massive; if you concede it, nine times out of 10 you don’t get back. It’s important a few risks are taken to try to score that goal because it gives you such a psychological boost.”
