2) The tenacious midfielder scored his first of five cup finals goals against Alaves in the Uefa Cup showpiece in 2001.

3) The Liverpool youth graduate cemented his growing reputation for spectacular long-range goals with a memorable strike in a 2-0 victory over Manchester United in 2001.

4) Gerrard broke the deadlock against bitter rivals Manchester United in the 2003 League Cup final.
