It’s fair to stay Steven Gerrard hasn’t had a great year, after *that* slip and a horrendous World Cup campaign with England in Brazil. However, he came good last night.
Against Leicester City, the Reds were struggling and needed a change in fortune. Up stepped Stevie G, like he has many times before, and tucked home a goal to put Liverpool ahead for the first-team. It was a crucial goal at a crucial time and some now believe the former-Three Lions captain has answered his critics.
However, there’s still plenty that think he’s past it- and that everyone is getting carried away with their reactions following his first goal in open play since January 2014. After all, they were playing the team bottom of the pile.
I think last night’s performance shows just why Steven Gerrard is still the third best player in the world only behind Messi and Ronaldo

Gerrard third best player in the world? Some people seriously need to stop watching football and take up table tennis instead

Liverpool back in the title race with Steven Gerrard going for the Ballon D’or. What a win against Leicester can do. Imagine if we won?

That felt like a vintage Gerrard goal.

Tonight was Gerrard’s best performance in well over half a year, arguably longer. He needs a rest every now and again to remain effective.

The hatred Gerrard receives is embarrassing. Doesn’t deserve it.

Steven Gerrard makes his doubters eat a big slice of humble pie, with a side foot finish from 8 yards out, against Leicester.

“You don’t become a bad player overnight.” M.Owen on Gerrard. Well, no, but you turn into a worse player than before over a series of years.

And that is why you play Gerrard further forward. Still a superb finisher.
