Gerrard was discussing Chelsea’s chance of winning the Premier League when he mentioned that they should “avoid little slip-ups”.
It led to a moment of awkward silence in the BT Sport studio – given Gerrard slipped while playing the Blues in a huge title clash in 2014.
That led to Liverpool throwing away the chance of Premier League glory as they were nipped to the line by Manchester City.
Unfortunately for the Kop legend, his unfortunate choice of words didn’t go unnoticed.
