Liverpool were on the verge of winning the Premier League title in 2014 when they faced Chelsea at Anfield.

The Reds had won their previous 11 games and were confident of beating Chelsea at Anfield as they looked to win the Premier League ahead of Manchester City.

Chelsea ruined Liverpool’s chances of winning the Premier League by beating the Reds 2-0 at Anfield.

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard was at fault for Chelsea’s first goal as the midfielder slipped while on the ball, allowing Chelsea striker Demba Ba to burst through and find the net.

Gerrard has now opened up on his slip and the Liverpool legend admits it’s the worst day of his life.

“Don’t think (the epidural) is an excuse for what happened,” Gerrard told Daily Mail.

“Not at all. What happened was just a pure bad stroke of luck for myself.

“That’s why it was cruel. I haven’t lost my man at a set piece. I haven’t missed a penalty. I haven’t made a bad pass.

“Every single person on the planet slips at some point, whether it is on a set of stairs, on the floor or whatever, but it happened on the pitch at a really bad moment.

“I’ve went through the pain in the dressing room after and in the weeks and months after it. It was the worst day of my life.”

Meanwhile, Demba Ba has admitted he doesn’t feel sorry for Gerrard after his infamous slip in 2014.

“I didn’t feel sorry for him,” Ba told The Sun.

“I’m not a Steven Gerrard supporter. I’m not a Liverpool supporter.

“I’m not a Man City supporter or happy that they won the league.

“It’s all part of the game. It’s the same as Crystal Palace last year when they were safe and had nothing to play for, they went and played at Stoke and sent them down by winning.

“You go and do your job, you go to win.”
