Steven Gerrard Makes Honest Admission About Liverpool's Premier League Title Win

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has revealed the club's Premier League triumph this season allowed him to bury his own title demons.

Jurgen Klopp's side sealed the club's first-ever Premier League title last month and will finally lift the trophy following Wednesday's clash with Chelsea.

Gerrard nearly led Liverpool to the title in 2014 but his now legendary slip against Chelsea saw them lose ground on Manchester City in the title race.

"It was fantastic for everyone connected to the club but it was mixed emotions in many ways because of my own experiences, being a fan and ex-player and a lot of my family are Liverpool fans as well.
