Cape Town - Steven Gerrard admits Saturday's meeting with Crystal Palace will be an emotional day for him, his family and all Liverpool supporters.

After 17 years and 708 appearances, the skipper will run out at Anfield for the final time at the weekend as the Reds play their last home game of the season prior to his switch to Major League Soccer with LA Galaxy.

The day is sure to be dominated by celebration of Gerrard's career with Liverpool but the 34-year-old says he wants to sign off in appropriate fashion, by ensuring his team get the win.

"It'll be strange, I'm sure it will," he told Liverpoolfc.com.

"It'll be an emotional day for me and my family and friends that have followed me throughout my career. And also for a lot of supporters that have watched me for many, many years, not just at the stadium but around the world as well.

"I'm going to get the attention at the weekend, it's not something I really like, but hopefully I can put in a good performance for the supporters so we can get a win and I can enjoy the send-off that I'm going to get. 

"It's going to be a difficult day but I'm going to try and enjoy it."

Liverpool host Crystal Palace at Anfield on Saturday. The match kicks off at 18:30.
