Steven Gerrard would be wise to avoid Twitter for the next few days after his costly slip against Chelsea was endlessly mocked by the social media brigade.

The result was a storm of memes mocking the Liverpool captain.

STEVIE'S SLIPPERS: Give a guest a generous gift today! (

It all made an interview he gave with one national newspaper earlier this week seem all the more unfortunate.

Ouch!

It seems harsh that we live in a world where Gerrard is still without a Premier League medal when you consider some of the people who do have one in their collection.

Steven Gerrard doesn't deserve to have as many PL medals as Bebe

Certainly you won't hear any Liverpool fans give out about Gerrard such has been his amazing service to the club. Iago Aspas though has not built up such credit and his cameo certainly didn't go unnoticed...for the wrong reasons.

Iago Aspas. Are they filming Goal IV or something?— Football Clichés (@FootballCliches)
Seems like a good time to revive 'Aspas: looks like a face drawn on a balloon' from the start of the season. Apologies, forget who said that — Nick Miller (@NickMiller79)

It was just a bad day for Liverpool all around.

"Hiya, d'ya do refunds?"

Steady...

Haven't seen Liverpool fans this angry since Evra racially abused himself and blamed it on Suarez — Kristopher Robben (@Phaetonv2)

But if Liverpool fans did want to irrationally blame somebody how about this guy?

Cursed? Pranksters

Moyes' Curse!
Liverpool have won only four of their last 10 Premier League games when David Moyes hasn't been manager of Man Utd. — Duncan Alexander (@oilysailor)

You have to give Jose Mourinho some credit though. He got his tactics spot on.

Mourinho was right all along: the hoodie and bodywarmer combo proved to be perfect attire for that celebration. Masterful decision-making.— Dan Quarrell (@Dan_Eurosport)

Nobody compares to him really, well not quite nobody....

Jose Mourinho takes a dig at Jamie Redknapp: "Ask Jamie for the analysis. He's got a great football brain." Ouch. — Squawka Football (@Squawka)

Zing!

Back again soon.
