The Liverpool’s veteran midfielder Steven Gerrard scored in a 1-1 draw against Chelsea in their Premier League clash.
Gerrard, 34, who is leaving for the MLS side LA Galaxy this summer, received a standing ovation from the Blues fans and manager Jose Mourinho after the midfielder was replaced by Lucas Leiva at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Gerrard will play his last Liverpool’s game at Anfield against Crystal Palace next Saturday.
The Merseysiders are six points adrift of Manchester United with two games in hand.

Gerrard goal masks another half in which we looked disturbingly rudderless.

Gerrard deserves a lot of credit for not mugging us off when he scored. He had every right. — Kelvin Barker (@ChelseaKelv) May 10, 2015
Steven Gerrard is past it but he’s still our top scorer this season. Says it all. Hard to imagine life without our captain. #LFC

Gerrard has had a difficult last season but his contribution to the PL just can’t be undermined. Great player. And I will miss the lad. — Satish (@FabulousArsenal) May 10, 2015
