Jonjo Shelvey admits he looks up to Liverpool teammate Steven Gerrard as a role model.

The midfielder is happy working every day with the Reds captain.

Shelvey said: "He is just a great role model to learn from. You can't say enough about Stevie. He does his talking on and off the pitch. He lives the life of a proper professional footballer.

"His performances have been first-class and he has been my perfect role model since day one and someone every young player can learn from. He fully deserved his England award."
