"I have spoken to the manager about what role he sees me filling," said Gerrard. "I still think he sees me as an attacking midfielder. I don't think anything is going to change this season. I can still play a dynamic, energetic game.
"I'm prepared to adapt. I'll do whatever the manager wants but I can still play the same way. I think people want me to say I can't play the same way anymore; that I will have to go deeper and play a slower game. But, believe me, it's not happening yet.
"I'll play the Scholes role when I feel it's time - but it's not time yet. I've got the medical staff collecting figures every day in training. They measure your heart-rate, the amount of running you do and monitor you at high tempo, low tempo."
