Steven Gerrard - staring oblivion in the face.

Reds Captain is positive despite shock result.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has refused to panic despite admitting that the 3-0 defeat at West Brom on the opening day of the Premier League season was a massive 'shock'.

The Reds were hammered in Brendan Rodgers' first game in charge and even though they were the subject of some questionable refereeing decisions, it was an extremely disappointing performance from Gerrard and co.

At the start of every Premier League campaign there is optimism and genuine belief that the upcoming season can be successful. After this opening day drubbing though, this has been partly banished at Anfield.

There are still 37 Premier League games to go though and Gerrard isn't reading too much into the result at the Hawthorns. After all, the opening day is famous for bizarre results and it is now all about how Liverpool respond.

Speaking to the media after the defeat on Saturday, Gerrard said: "The feeling after was one of total shock with the result. It was never a 3-0 game."

"I fancied us to go there, dominate and win but things didn't work out that way. In football you can be left feeling hard done by."

"It's not the start we wanted but it's no time for panic. It's only the first game and it was one bad day at the office. We've got to look at the bigger picture."

The start of the bigger picture is a home game with Manchester City this weekend, so it doesn't get any easier for Liverpool. However, thinking positively, they will hope that a decent result against the Champions can kick start their season.

One of the main ambitions for Rodgers this year will be to improve the home form too. Last year, Liverpool drew nine league games at Anfield and only managed to win six.

This has to improve if they are to challenge the top four and the quest for better fortunes in front of the Liverpool faithful begins on Sunday afternoon.

As for Manchester City, they had a dramatic start to their campaign against Southampton, coming back from 2-1 down to win 3-2 in a contest similar to the victory over Queens Park Rangers on the final day of last season.

Roberto Mancini will now hope his team can settle down and show their class at Anfield. It is likely to be another tight battle for 1st position and City will want to make it two wins from as many games.

There is an outside chance they could have a new face in their squad this weekend too with Mancini admitting he is still after additions to his squad. The Italian will also be sweating on the fitness of Sergio Aguero who was stretchered off against Southampton.

Overall, there is plenty going on ahead of what should be a cracking Super Sunday between Liverpool and Manchester City.

Liverpool are 17/8 to win at Anfield whilst City are 7/'5 at Skybet/ 5/2 the draw.
