This has been a thoroughly unpleasant ten-month hangover, but as is often the case, it felt like it was worth it last season. Liverpool's season is over after today, and the best they'll be able to do is cement the fifth spot in the Premier League table while sending Steven Gerrard on his way with a win. The worst they can do is pretty much what they did last weekend, so there's not really any crisis scenario here. Unless it involves finishing seventh somehow and starting Europa League qualifying next weekend. That would probably be bad.
