Liverpool trio Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez and Lucas Leiva have gone head-to-head in a charity battle for Children in Need.

The players came together to thank school children for their efforts in raising money for the cause, and treated pupils at Anfield Juniors to a little bit of competition as well.

Each player took charge of their own ‘mini team’, and it was the Brazilian international midfielder who claimed victory in-front of the BBC cameras.

One of the activities the players got involved with was an egg-and-spoon race, with the England skipper appearing to struggle with his control in a picture released ahead of Friday’s TV extravaganza.

Gerrard was more than happy to lend a hand to the charity cause, and admitted it was great to see the smiling faces as the Liverpool stars helped raise money for a good cause.

“BBC Children in Need is a fantastic charity and it’s great to come out and support the work that they do,” said Gerrard, according to The Daily Star.

“Kids from up and down the country have been coming together to raise money for Children in Need, and we wanted to come along and say thank you.”

The Anfield hero is unlikely to be involved in events on Friday night however, as England host Chile in an international friendly at Wembley.

And, the Liverpool stars will next be in action for Brendan Rodgers’ side in nine days, when the Reds face Everton in a Merseyside derby at Goodison Park.
