West Brom v Liverpool: Steven Gerrard will 'get it right' in new deep role
Brendan Rodgers has been deploying his captain just in front of the back four
Friday 31 January 2014
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is confident he can “get it right” in the deeper role he has been occupying of late.
The midfielder has been operating just in front of the back four recently, something he admitted had not worked in the Reds' recent 2-2 home draw with Aston Villa.
But he produced an impressive display from the position on Tuesday when Liverpool thrashed their derby rivals Everton 4-0 at Anfield.
And the 33-year-old England skipper, quoted by http://www.liverpoolfc.com, said: "It's a different position to the one that I've played for the last 12 or 15 years.
"Previously, I've been trying to get from box to box. But the new role is more about control and organising the people in front of me.
"I know that with time and work on the training pitch, I can get it right because I believe I can play in a number of positions."
