Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has hailed the sensational impact of youngster Raheem Sterling, whom he believes can go "all the way to the top".

The 17-year-old became the Reds' second-youngest scorer in the Premier League after Michael Owen with the only goal - his first senior one for the club - in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Reading.

"I think he has been a great surprise to everyone; not that he is doing so well at this level but I don't think anyone expected him to break through so early," the 32-year-old said.
