Steven Gerrard has been hailed as "peerless" by Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers after the midfielder inspired his side to a 3-2 win away at Fulham this evening.

The Reds fell behind at Craven Cottage as Kolo Toure's run of bad luck continued, the Ivorian scoring an own goal in the eighth minute.

However, in the 41st minute, Gerrard produced a sublime pass with the outside of his boot to play in Daniel Sturridge, who slotted home.

Fulham once again took the lead in the second half though as Kieran Richardson capitalised on a defensive mistake to score.


Philippe Coutinho then levelled the game once again in the 72nd minute, before Liverpool were awarded a penalty at the death, which Gerrard slotted home.

And Rodgers was full of praise for his captain.

"Steven Gerrard is peerless in situations like that. He showed brilliant composure", Rodgers was quoted as saying by the BBC.

"It was a great result. We've had to show character to come form behind twice. A brilliant victory.

"We conceded two goals, that has been unlike us for a while. We need to eradicate the individual errors. Thankfully we have goals in the team."

Liverpool now have 53 points from 26 games and sit fourth, a whopping eleven points more than rivals Manchester United, in seventh, who drew 0-0 at Arsenal.
