Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard came to his side's aid once again as his late second-half hat-trick inspired the Reds to a 3-1 Europa League victory against Napoli which highlighted the gulf in class within the squad.

The visitors were deservedly in front through Ezequiel Lavezzi but the England midfielder's introduction at the interval changed the dynamic.

Gerrard, as he always has, led from the front and scored three goals in the final 15 minutes to extend Liverpool's lead at the top of Group K.
