Gerrard was questioned about being given the time Klopp and Guardiola have had to create their respective successful squads ahead of this weekend’s Premier League title battle.

I’m quite confident, and I feel that with the appropriate support and additions, we can really kick it next year and come back stronger.”
“We need to concentrate on pushing into the top half of the league and really trying to reach out and be the best of the rest in terms of the top six,” Gerrard stated. That has to be our top priority.”

“We just have a few hours to prepare.” We’ll wait and observe how they recuperate before deciding what to do in the next 24 hours.
“However, we must be highly organized defensively, and everyone must be fully invested in our own organization and contribution to the game.”
At the same time, we’re not going to sit around and do nothing. We need to be a danger in this game, therefore we’ll do everything we can to prepare.”
