The Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard has said that he is getting close to his best after a few weeks of indifferent form. Despite coming into the twilight of his career, Gerrard is still regarded as the heartbeat of the Liverpool team in many ways. He was at his best goal scoring form a few years ago, but a number of injuries have taken the edge of his game in recent years. However, he seems to be slowly getting back to his best after an indifferent start to the new season. The Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers praised the midfielder at the start of the season, but he has so far scored less than five goals.
Gerrard has admitted that his performances have not been at the best this season, but it has been a mixed one because he has been able to have the experience of playing more than 600 matches for Liverpool and 100 matches for the national team. Liverpool are currently enjoying their best spell in the season and have managed to win four out of the last five matches. This has helped them get up to the eighth position in the table only a few points below the top four positions. They will be facing Manchester United during the weekend.
“I’ve had mixed experiences this season. I’ve passed some unbelievable landmarks for club and country, getting to the 600 games mark and winning my 100th cap for England. But with the slow start we made and being where we have in the league it’s been a bit mixed for me. There’s my form as well. I’ve played well in some games but I’ve been disappointed with myself in others and I’m not happy with my goal tally at the moment,” said the midfielder, who has made 21 appearances in all competitions.
