Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard is impressed by new midfield pair Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson.

Gerrard is now fit enough to challenge for a place in the Reds midfield.

He told liverpoolfc.tv: "We've bought well in the summer.

"I think Charlie has settled really well and has put in some good performances, Jordan is young and getting better, so I think in general we're going well and Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez still feel like new signings because they came in January. The squad is looking very strong."
