Gerrard: I can still be 'driving force'

CAPTAIN Steven Gerrard is confident he can go on producing inspirational displays for Liverpool for some time to come.

The England midfielder will be 33 in May as he enters the final year of his contract at Anfield.

And, while he is happy to shoulder the responsibility of being the side's talismanic figure, Gerrard insists there are others capable of doing the same.

"I think eventually I may have to change (my game), but at the moment, while I am feeling good and fit and doing as much running as anyone else, I don't see any reason to," he said.

"But every player on the planet, eventually when they get to a certain age, has to adjust certain things in their game and I am good enough to do that, it is not a worry for me.

"I know I can play a lot deeper in Liverpool's team quite comfortably, but while I've still got the legs, energy and will to get forward I will continue to do that and try to get on the scoresheet and create goals.

"My aim every time I go on to the pitch is to make a contribution and be the driving force behind the team."
