68 touches, 3 shots, 84% passing accuracy - Gerrard's final Anfield appearance in stats

Steven Gerrard In 2014

How did the Liverpool legend get on during his last ever game at Anfield - a disappointing 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace.

Liverpool captain and legend Steven Gerrard brought the curtain down on his phenomenal relationship with Anfield, making his final appearance as a Reds player at the ground he has shone for 17 years.

The midfielder is leaving at the end of the season to join LA Galaxy in the MLS, and now has just next week's game against Stoke before he will remove the Liverpool colours for the very last time.

It wasn't to be a fairytale ending for the Premier League icon, as Crystal Palace put in a superb performance to win 3-1, their first win at the ground since 1991. Though, to be honest, the result felt like a footnote to a day that was really all about Steven Gerrard and the Anfield fans thanking each other for their wonderful memories over the years.

Below are Gerrard's statistics from the game:

The Liverpool legend was unable to find the net in his final home appearance, though did force Wayne Hennessy into a smart save with a low drive from 25 yards out as the Reds found themselves 2-1 behind in the final half hour.

There was also a wild attempt at a half-volley from the edge of the box that flew into the Kop, who affectionally sang to their idol 'what the hell was that.'

The 34-year-old had less touches than his central midfield partners Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson, with his passing accuracy weaker than many of his Liverpool teammates, but as the game went on, he was attempting riskier cross field passes and through balls.

Late on, Gerrard was the player that was urging the Reds on, as he pushed further up the field once Lucas had come on from the bench.

But a goal or telling moment wasn't to be, and Crystal Palace ended up scoring a third after a fortunate penalty was awarded following a trip on Wilfried Zaha.

That didn't faze the Liverpool faithful though, and whatever Gerrard's performance, they would have been as noisy and supportive as they were, singing throughout the name of the legend they may never again see grace the Anfield turf.
