Despite the fact that Lucas took Henderson's spot as Gerrard was already farther forward.
I think he meant that because Lucas came on, Gerrard was more inclined to push forward, whereas in the first half (for whatever reason) Stevie was dropping incredibly deep and literally taking the ball off the defenders toes. Once Lucas came on we looked more balanced and Gerrard got nearer to Borini, who looked isolated all game.
Felt sorry for Borini as it goes as he worked his nuts off, his movement was good, but the only type of ball he was given was long and over the top (often Stevie looking for hollywood pass) and we didn't support him at all. Looked lonely, but fair play to him for never giving up.
Gerrard was poor. Sloppy in possesion, dropped too deep, didn't give Borini any support and was so predictable playing long balls over the top when easier and better passes were on, and not many (any?) of these came off. Looked better with Lucas' arrival.
Sterling did well, beat his man a few times and looked threatening with his pace. He's got a long way to go but the lad clearly has buckets of potential.
Spearing and Henderson did okay, but weren't really good enough. Carra actually did alright and I see far less hoofed passes than usual, which is always a good thing. Jones did enough, no mistakes and a clean sheet.
Shame about Cole, but he was bound to get injured at some point.
Oh, and like everyone else, propper shit myself when Lucas went down, then saw the contact and breathed a sigh of relief that it was clearly only a dead leg.
