Gerrard: Ince injury opened Liverpool door for me

Steven Gerrard admits an injury to Paul Ince opened the door to him at Liverpool.

Gerrard will make his 500th appearance for Liverpool this weekend against Blackburn Rovers.

On his debut, Gerrard told TalkSport: "I'm living the dream. Around about that time when I made my debut, my dad was just always saying to me, 'you know, you are really close to getting you chance' and I was just praying that that chance would come along.

"At the time we had injuries to big players like (Steve) McManaman and Incey (Paul Ince) and stuff and I managed to sneak on as a sub, funnily enough against Blackburn. It's an amazing career so far and hopefully I'll continue to go the same way."
