Liverpool's 6-3 win over Cardiff City on Saturday was a fiery and unpredictable affair, with the Reds overturning a one-goal deficit twice before racing three goals ahead and adding a sixth in the final seconds.

However, one thing that was never in doubt, according to Opta stats, was the sheer consistency of Steven Gerrard's passing in the middle of the park.

The Liverpool skipper took a whopping 122 touches of the ball throughout the 90 minutes, 108 of which were counted as passes to a teammate.

Even more impressive was the 33-year-old's pass completion rate which, at 92.6 per cent was joint-highest, alongside Jordan Henderson, of all the midfielders on the pitch.

Gerrard also launched two successful tackles at the Cardiff City Stadium, made three clearances and provided two shot assists and two crosses for his teammates to attack.
