Top 5: English performers this season (6)

1. Steven Gerrard

The Liverpool and England captain has been an ever-present figure in Brendan Rodgers’ side this season and has been instrumental in the club’s drive towards the Premier League title.

Consider the fact that, from January, Gerrard was asked to play in front of the back four in role that would accommodate both his age and the dynamics of the squad.

Despite having to give up his rampant attacking instincts and become more disciplined, Gerrard has shined in his new role.

Reminiscent of Paul Scholes’ similar adaptation into a defensive midfielder, Gerrard has been one of the best players in the Premier League this season.

The Liverpudlian has still managed to score 13 goals this season, even though he has adapted his style of play.

He undoubtedly deserves top spot for his amazing consistency and his huge contribution to a likely Premier League title win.
