Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard says he “wants to make the most” out of what is likely to be his final FA Cup campaign for the Reds.

The former England skipper recently confirmed he will be leaving Anfield at the end of the season when his contract expires – bringing a 28-year association to an end.

The midfielder will move to the MLS in the summer although his exact destination is yet to be announced.

Gerrard was in superb form on Monday night in the FA Cup third-round tie at Wimbledon as the 34-year-old bagged both goals in the 2-1 victory at Kingsmeadow.

He has won the FA Cup twice with Liverpool – in 2001 and 2006 – and the skipper is hoping to bow out with another success in the famous tournament.

“I always enjoy the FA Cup,” he said on BBC One. “I grew up loving the competition and as it’s going to be my last time, I want to make the most of it and try and go all the way.

“If I weren’t here playing for this team, I’d probably be in the stands watching it so I know what (the FA Cup) means to every single supporter, that’s why I always try to give my best.

“We’ve got to take each game as it comes. I’m told we’ve got Bolton at home in the next round and that’ll be another difficult test.”

Liverpool return to Premier League duty on Saturday when they travel to struggling Sunderland for a 12.45pm kick-off.

The Reds are favourites at 1.95 to clinch all three points while the Black Cats are at 3.95.
