League Cup final
Although Liverpool was under pressure for most of the time in this match, they had enjoyed their lead for 80 mins when Gerrard struck home to equalise for chelsea. Liverpool fans could have been singing by now if Gerrard didnt make that terrible mistake which had cost them the chance of silverware this season.
Ppl says Gerrard is the best but personally I think he s nothing. In the big match with this much pressure, a star must know how to keep his nerve and never send the ball home like this. It can be said as Gerrard must take full responsibility for Liverpool's defeat (and for the chance which Man U could take advantage if only chelsea slipped).

Oh man , a clumsy header under the pressure from Chelsea and Gerrard's own goal changed the match. The spirit of Chelsea flied really high after this incident. But i dont thing he must take full responsibility for this because Chelsea dominated the match with the ball possesion while Liverpool owned half only with tight marking and counter attack. Liverpool played well 'till that own goal actually. Above all, i think Chelsea deserve to have this cup and Liverpool needs more time with their new manager. My point of view : the difference between 2 teams is their transfer budget.
