A mind blowing elimination in the F.A. Cup to Barnsley has added huge pressure to today’s Liverpool vs. Inter Milan Champions League match (Espn2 at 1:30 CST). To make matters worse the loss came at Anfield the famous home of the “Reds”.
Manager Rafa Benitez is under heavy pressure with a club that he guided to the Champions League Final last year.
Steven Gerrard is the leading scorer in the Champions league for Liverpool with 4 goals which is a statement about the team. Gerrard is everything to Liverpool and is over-burdened as a player.
Conversely, Inter Milan’s leading goal scorer is striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic whose duties don’t include controlling midfield. My point here is Gerrard is over-worked and expected to do too much for this squad.
