Gerrard attacks Everton and likens them to Stoke

Steven Gerrard has said Everton are ‘like Stoke’ and a long ball team.

Gerrard launched the attack against Everton after the Merseyside derby, which they drew 2-2.

“There was only one team who came into the derby trying to play football,” said Gerrard. “Everton are effective because they have some big physical lads in the team and are very direct. They are effective. But the only team who tried to play football was us.

“Everton are not better than us. I thought we stood up to a team that are very similar to Stoke. Every single time they got the ball to their goalkeeper it came in long. We had a young, small team and they were all men and stood together. We deserved the win.”
