Steven Gerrard's future at Liverpool may be in doubt but he turned back the clock to score in a 3-1 victory at struggling Leicester City in the Premier League last night.

Gerrard (34) left out of the starting line-up on Saturday, started at Leicester and rifled home a poor clearance to turn the balance of the match Liverpool's way in the 54th minute.

The visitors have fallen behind when keeper Simon Mignolet conceded an own goal after 22 minutes before a 26th minute Adam Lallana equaliser for Liverpool.

Leicester were reduced to 10 men when captain Wes Morgan was sent off for a foul on Rickie Lambert after 63 minutes and they conceded a third when Jordan Henderson scored after 83 minutes.

Liverpool may want to re-think the contract offer made to Steven Gerrard after their captain bailed them out, like he has done so many times in the past.

The former England midfielder's current deal expires in the summer and, despite the offer of an extension, he has yet to commit to stay at the club he has been with since he was nine.

But while Gerrard may be deliberating his next move, reportedly wanting double the one-year contract on offer, he showed no hesitation on the pitch with a coolly-placed goal to set his side on the way to victory and provide a reminder of glory days gone by.
