Gerrard: Liverpool lack cutting edge

Steven Gerrard has pinpointed Liverpool's lack of cutting edge against sides above them in the Premier League table as their main weakness.

Speaking after the Reds' goalless draw against Merseyside rivals Everton, Gerrard said that the game summed up a frustrating season.

• O'Farrell: Draw brings focus
• Walsh: Derby whimper symbolic

"We all wanted [a goal] at the end, mainly for this fella [Jamie Carragher] playing in his last derby," Gerrard told Sky Sports 1. "Everton have improved a lot. They've had a good season and are difficult to beat and that sums our season up in a way.

"We played well but lacked the cutting edge against the sides above us. We'll take a point but we're slightly disappointed it wasn't three."

Carragher, who will retire at the end of the season, was disappointed not to sign off with a win in his final game against Everton but credited the opposition for being able to keep a Liverpool side growing in confidence at bay.

He said: "It's a fair result. It wasn't to be and a draw was a fair result. There weren't too many chances at either end. It was a tense derby if you like and credit to Everton.

"Coming to Anfield and getting a draw is a good result. I'm slightly disappointed but a fair result in the end I think. It was a good day. I've got a few games left with Liverpool. It was a big-game derby and I would have liked to have won it but ultimately we didn't lose."

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers faces a tough task replacing Carragher in the summer. The defender has played over 700 times for his hometown side and Gerrard is certain that there aren't many more like him out there.

He added: "You've seen his display today. Since he's been back in the team he's been our most consistent player. I wouldn't like to be in Brendan Rodgers' shoes when he's trying to replace him in the summer."

Meanwhile, Rodgers' Everton counterpart David Moyes insists referee Michael Oliver should have awarded Silvain Distin a goal when he headed home past Pepe Reina, who was ruled to have been fouled by Victor Anichebe.

"It was a goal, a legitimate goal," said Moyes. "The goalkeeper runs into Victor Anichebe and it's a goal.

"The referee said that Victor impeded the goalkeeper, but it was actually the goalkeeper who ran into him so it can't possibly be a free-kick.

"It's frustrating because people are quite quick to remind me that I haven't won here at Anfield, but if you don't get any decisions, it's very hard to win here at Anfield. And that is quite a regular occurrence when we come to Anfield."

Everton look set to finish above Liverpool for the second consecutive year, with a five-point lead over their rivals heading into the final two matches.

But Moyes insists his side has been more focused on qualifying for Europe than achieving bragging rights over the Reds.

"It is not something which has happened that often - finishing above Liverpool," Moyes said. "It is not something we look out for and I am sure it is not something Liverpool look out for.

"It shows we are trying to make progress against a lot of the other good sides in the division. But the only thing that does matter is the European picture for us at Everton.

"We are trying to get back among the bigger boys and play on that stage as regularly as we possibly can. We have already nearly got the best total we've ever had. We had 61 when we qualified (for the Champions League) and we've got 60 now so we've had a pretty good season.

"It will be disappointing if we don't get rewarded for it but we'll try to win the last two games and see if we can get rewarded. The comfort for me would be to qualify for Europe. That would be my main objective, it doesn't change."
