His captain put in another all-round performance, scoring his fourth goal in seven matches.
"He was absolutely incredible. The short pass, the long pass...he was magnificent," the Northern Irishman said.
"But not only that, his intensity without the ball was really aggressive and pressing. He's a captain at the moment who's playing with great responsibility and cohesion with the team, and he's really enjoying his football.
"He's happy, he's smiling and his goal was a trademark Steven Gerrard goal."
