Despite the victory, Sterling, who opened the scoring in the first half, has claimed that Gerrard kept matters in perspective for the team by gathering the players in a huddle to urge them to focus on playing Norwich City this weekend.
"He just said that it was a great win for us and a great team effort," Sterling told the club's official website. "He said that we don't just stop here - we go again against Norwich next week.
"It was another tremendous captain's performance from him, to regroup the boys and tell us it's not over just because of today's game, and to go again next week - credit to him."
If Liverpool win their final four games, they will lift the league title for the first time since 1990.
