Liverpool are desperate to win the Premier League for Steven Gerrard, according to Daniel Sturridge.

The Reds moved top of the Premier League table with six games to go on Sunday after a comprehensive 4-0 win over Tottenham at Anfield.

Every player in this team will do their best to help him achieve that goal

The Premier League is the only club honour missing from Gerrard’s haul with the Merseyside club.

And Sturridge insists that he and his Liverpool team-mates are keen to help the Reds win the title for their 33-year-old captain.

“There’s no-one more appropriate than Stevie to lift the trophy, not a chance,” said Sturridge.

“If we win it, Stevie will really deserve it,” said Sturridge. “He should win the Premier League because of everything he has done for this club.

“Every player in this team will do their best to help him achieve that goal.”

“He’s just unbelievable every day, a great leader. He lives and dies for this club. He’s been here his whole career and it’s just a great pleasure to be able to play with him.

“He is the perfect example for every young player around the country, in fact a real example for every player. He’s been so loyal to Liverpool. He has been world class, and still is world class.

“Stevie will always be a legend not just for Liverpool, but to England as well. He will definitely go down in history as one of the best midfielders in the game, never mind just this club.”
