Liverpool captain Gerrard not about to change all-action style just yet
Gerrard acknowledged that he is operating in a slightly deeper role than in previous seasons, under direction from Brendan Rodgers, but warned that his swashbuckling days are by no means a thing of the past.
"If you play around good players, they make good movement and put themselves in good positions," the No.8 explained to Liverpoolfc.com.
"My job and what the manager wants me to do from my position is to try to create and be a playmaker in there.
"Maybe I'm playing a little bit deeper this year but I can still get into areas where I can hurt the opposition. That's what I'm trying to do. I wasn't aware of the stat but it's nice and I'd like that to continue until the end of the season."
