That moment is something that the Liverpool fans can never forget.

Steven Gerrard

Demba Ba, the former striker for Chelsea, has acknowledged that he found “fun” in Steven Gerrard’s legendary fall during Liverpool’s 2-0 Premier League defeat to the Blues on April 27, 2014.

The Reds knew going into the match at Anfield that they would win the Premier League title with seven points from their final three league games. Chelsea was content to wait it out and absorb the pressure as Jose Mourinho built up a rather defensive team.

One such opportunity occurred in stoppage time of the first half when Gerrard stumbled and was unable to control a straightforward ball inside his own half. Being alert, Ba took advantage of the situation, finishing with precision to give Chelsea a 1-0 lead at halftime. seeks openings to launch an assault.

Fernando Torres, who was once a favourite among Liverpool supporters, devastated the Reds’ faithful by setting up colleague Willian’s stoppage-time goal in the second half. Liverpool did not control their destiny in terms of winning the title as a result of the draw.

Speaking back to FourFourTwo, Ba recalled the error that turned out to be crucial in Liverpool’s 2013–14 league season collapse. He said, “I remember all of my goals like they were my first love, but this one is very special to people because of the scenario and the drama that went with it. Gerrard hadn’t won the league and Liverpool hadn’t for many years.”

“It was a really tough moment for those players” : Demba Ba

The former Newcastle United striker added, “It was a really tough moment for those players. For me, frankly, it’s just another goal. There are iconic moments in football where you’re the good guy or the bad guy – that’s life. I don’t make fun of it. Well, maybe once or twice…!”

Liverpool led 3-0 against Crystal Palace in the league match that followed, but the teams tied 3-3. Despite their victory over Newcastle United on the last day, Manchester City secured the league title with a margin of two points.
