Liverpool midfielder Jay Spearing hopes his burgeoning partnership with captain Steven Gerrard can lead to another trophy.

The academy graduate has started the last two matches alongside the England international at the expense of summer signing Charlie Adam and the pair have dovetailed well. Spearing knows he can learn much from his skipper and hopes to be able to continue to do so.

"Every game I play alongside Stevie G is a massive confidence boost for me," said Spearing, who captained Liverpool to two FA Youth Cups. "With me playing game after game it brings out my personal confidence and I am trying to show what I'm all about."
