Ex-England star Gary Lineker has put his customary impartiality to one side for a change by saying he would love to see Steven Gerrard lift the Premier League title this season. The Liverpool icon has never won the league in a glittering career that has seen him collect all other major club trophies. And with the talisman close to turning 34 many had felt his time to lift the Premier League had passed – until now, after a sensational run of 10 straight wins has put them in pole position to be champions of England for the first time since 1990. On the 25th anniversary of Hillsborough the Reds were clearly fired up for today’s match as they stormed to a 3-2 victory over Manchester City, opening up a seven point gap between themselves and the Etihad outfit, who have two games in hand. But the Anfield club now have fate in their own hands with just four games to play and must now be considered favourites. And Lineker thinks it would be fitting to see the Liverpool captain finally secure the trophy that has eluded him during his career. I’m going to put my neutrality to one side and say I would love to see Steven Gerrard lift the Premier League trophy, he wrote on Twitter.
