Newcastle's Guthrie: Liverpool skipper Gerrard can be Premiership's greatest ever

Newcastle United midfielder Danny Guthrie says Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard could go down as the Premiership's greatest ever midfielder.

"I think Stevie G could be the best midfielder ever in the Premier League, especially because he gets so many goals," Guthrie, who spent nine years - as young man and boy - at Anfield, told the Sunday Sun.

"For a midfielder to score as many as he does is incredible, and he's definitely up there with the best in every other department. So he's the top man.

"I learned a lot from Steven. I was only 18 when I went training with the first team at Liverpool, so it was a massive step up.

"And he was only one of so many top-class players all over the team, so I learned my trade well there."
