Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to express their sadness at the imminent departure of Steven Gerrard after his exceptional display against AFC Wimbledon in the third round of the FA Cup.
The Reds were put ahead by Gerrard in the opening stages of the game, heading home under dangerous circumstances.
However, Wimbledon equalised after typically poor defending from the Anfield club from a set piece, undoubtedly one of their weaknesses this campaign and last under Brendan Rodgers.
It was up to Gerrard to rescue Liverpool once again, taking his total of goals scored in his last two games to four goals, having also bagged a brace in the Premier League clash against Leicester City.
He stepped up to a free kick just outside the box, whipping it over the wall.
Despite further pressure from Wimbledon, Liverpool ultimately held on, and they have their captain to credit for progress to the next round.
Fans reacted, questioning why Gerrard is going to leave.
Gerrard saves us again… Who will be our saviour next season #LFC
