Liverpool star Steven Gerrard praised his club’s victory last night – but revealed it’s not enough for a club of its stature.
The Anfield outfit scraped a one-nil victory against Fulham thanks to a John Pantsil own goal.
But they will feel fortunate to have come away with all three points with Fulham dominating the last 15 minutes, wasting a number of good chances.
Gerrard was returning after a three-match suspension following his sending off against Manchester United in the FA Cup Third-Round tie earlier this month.
And the star midfielder revealed he’s pleased his side won without playing well but admitted he’s unhappy at the club’s position – despite a drastic improvement under new boss Kenny Dalglish.
The talismanic captain told The Liverpool Echo: “I thought we showed determination and desire and sometimes that’s what you need.
“If you don’t play well it’s important to still win and that’s what we did tonight.
“We want more than seventh, seventh’s not acceptable at this club.
“If you look where we were a couple of weeks ago, of course we’re happy being seventh, but we’ve got Stoke next and it’s important that we keep this run going and try and get another three points and move up the table even more.
“We’re not happy with seventh.”
