Liverpool icon John Aldridge says Raul Meireles is exciting him this season.

In his column for the Liverpool Echo, Aldo opined: "Raul Meireles excites me and is proving to be a great signing for Liverpool. The midfielder was outstanding at Spurs and in recent weeks has got better and better.

"Last Sunday was his best performance so far. From his left footed drive which nearly brought a goal to his header off the line, he was sensational and proved what a good player he is.

"When Steven Gerrard returns I’m convinced those two are going to form a fantastic partnership in the centre."
