Central Midfield – Steven Gerrard

Central Midfield - Steven Gerrard

Liverpool’s Captain Fantastic may be well into his veteran years at 33, but having just come to the end of arguably the best campaign of his career, Steven Gerrard’s eventual transition out of the Reds starting XI will likely be put on hold for another season.

Indeed, the England international has been stellar for the Anfield side this season, amassing a total of 13 goals and 13 assists from central midfield as the Reds staged a surprise coup for the Premier League title.

Gerrard’s slip-up against Chelsea may have been the most fatal moment in Liverpool’s season, but having reinvented himself in the deep-lying quarterback role this term, despite his long history of positionally ill-disciplined performances, it appears even age can’t hold back the Three Lions centurion.
