Brendan Rodgers: Steven Gerrard, Liverpool Will ‘Move On’ From Chelsea Slip

Steven Gerrard slip Liverpool Chelsea (2)Brendan Rodgers isn’t worried about Steven Gerrard’s mindset.

On Friday, Rodgers said Gerrard had already bounced back from last weekend’s costly error against Chelsea and is ready to lead Liverpool against Crystal Palace on Monday.

“No, not at all,” Rodgers said when asked if Gerrard was still feeling down, according to “Stevie was like us all — we all hurt (after the game).

“Obviously it was a big game. Steven played really, really well, but he was just unfortunate to make the slip and Demba Ba went through and finished really well.

“Steven is a guy who has picked himself up over many years after disappointments. And he will do it again. He’s a real, real good man. I think it’s been a wee bit over-analysed as well — the guy slipped, which can happen to anyone. Unfortunately it led to the goal. It happens and we move on.”

While Ba’s goal stood as the game-winner, and the defeat cost Liverpool control of the Premier League title race, Rodgers stood by his captain and refused to blame him after the game.

Liverpool can temporarily retake the top spot in the Premier League on Monday with a win or a draw at Crystal Palace, but title will only be decided next Sunday — on the final day of the season.
