Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has declared that despite playing in a deeper position this season, he still has it in him to venture into areas from where he can “hurt” opponents.

The midfielder, who has been playing deeper in view of helping his side’s defence this term, is yet to find the back of the net from open play in the current campaign as two of his three league goals were from penalties and the other from a deftly taken free-kick.


However, the England international insists that his primary role under manager Brendan Rodgers is that of a playmaker.

But Gerrard was quick to add that he is keen to be a threat for opposing teams by moving forward from his deeper position.


"My job and what the manager wants me to do from my position is to try to create and be a playmaker in there”, he explained to his club’s official site.

"Maybe I'm playing a little bit deeper this year but I can still get into areas where I can hurt the opposition."
