Carragher likens Everton starlet Barkley to Liverpool's Gerrard

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has likened Everton starlet Ross Barkley to his former teammate Steven Gerrard.

Barkley hit a screamer during the 2-2 draw at Norwich City.

“He is someone I have known of for quite a while. There has been a lot of talk on Merseyside about Ross," Carragher told the Liverpool Echo.

“We talk about the players that will come through and ask who is going to replace Steven Gerrard? Who is going to replace Frank Lampard?

“That goal on Saturday was Steven Gerrard-like and Frank Lampard-like. That is what you associate with these players.”
