Liverpool pledge support to Gerrard

Liverpool have released a statement pledging to support Steven Gerrard after he was charged with assault and affray following an alleged fracas outside a nightclub.
The 28-year-old international midfielder was charged in relation to an incident at a Southport bar in the early hours of Monday morning that left the venue's DJ requiring hospital treatment.
The Merseyside police confirmed the Reds captain was charged along with two other men who had also been arrested after a "disturbance" that resulted in 34-year-old Marcus McGee suffering facial injuries.
After the game on Sunday Gerrard, who scored twice, hailed his table-topping side as the best he has played in.

But several hours later he was apparently caught up in an altercation outside the Lounge Inn in Bold Street.

Police were called and arrested six men on suspicion of assault in nearby Lord Street.
