It hasn't taken long for new Liverpool signing Milan Jovanovic to realise the importance of Steven Gerrard to the Anfield cause.

The 29-year-old Serbian star believes that the best is yet to come from Roy Hodgson's team and has hailed Gerrard as the man to drag Liverpool up the Premier League table.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo after the Reds' 0-0 draw against Birmingham Jovanovic said: “It was difficult at Birmingham but I think we did well.

“We controlled things in some parts but need to improve in other areas. We need to play with this kind of intensity.

“If we keep the ball and control the match, it will be much easier for us to make chances and we will become more dangerous in attack. Even still, I think it was better than the last two games.

“We played hard, we had discipline and we really tried to be dangerous in attack."

Despite failing to score so far for his new club, Jovanovic has impressed with his whole-hearted and industrious displays. The forward is one of several new faces at Anfield and he admits that all the recent recruits are looking to their skipper for inspiration.

“It is going to take time because there are a lot of new players," he added.

“But if we keep getting the ball to Stevie [Gerrard], we will be much better.

“I have no doubts that we will climb the table.

“The Premier League is tough but we are Liverpool. That is what matters."
