Steven Gerrard Joked About Chelsea Slip After Aston Villa's 2-1 Defeat To Wolves

Steven Gerrard made a joke about his infamous slip against Chelsea when discussing two of his Aston Villa players falling over for Wolves' opener on Saturday.

Villa lost the Midlands derby 2-1 at Molineux, with the damage done in the first half where Jonny scored the opener and Ashley Young put through his own net.

Ollie Watkins pulled one back with a late penalty but Villa have now lost three consecutive games in the Premier League.

The first goal was a fine half volley from Jonny but there were two costly slips from John McGinn and Ezra Konsa in the build-up.


Konsa lost his footing when he tried to cut out a Joao Moutinho pass that ended up going through to Daniel Podence and eventually Jonny found the net.

Gerrard was asked about the slips but was able to poke fun at himself and arguably the lowest moment of his career back in 2014.

“Well any complaints or finger-pointing from me would be cheap," Gerrard said in his press conference.

"It might have been down to the pitch, it could’ve been down to studs but the reality is we gifted a team a goal on the back of it. It had a big impact on us.”

Gerrard slipped just before half-time in a crucial game against Chelsea at the end of the 2013/14 season and allowed Demba Ba to nip in and score.

Just two weeks before, after the Reds beat title rivals Manchester City 3-2 in what looked like a title-decider, Gerrard had got all of the team in a huddle and 'ironically screamed, "We do not let this f***ing slip!".

Liverpool lost 2-0 to Chelsea at Anfield and a collapse away at Crystal Palace having been 3-0 up denied Gerrard a first league title and allowed City to lift the trophy on the final day.

In 2020, Gerrard told long-time teammate Jamie Carragher that he thinks about the slip "most days".
