Opta statistics from Liverpool's 3-1 victory over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Sunday show how Reds captain Steven Gerrard produced a classic box-to-box performance.
In an attacking sense, the 33-year-old was a key element of the side's passing game; he registered 86.4 per cent accuracy, second only to Lucas Leiva among his midfield peers.
Our No.8 launched seven crosses too, with 42.9 per cent of those attempts proving successful, including the corner kick which created the opener for Daniel Sturridge.
Gerrard made 66 touches during the 90 minutes against the Black Cats, won 66.7 per cent of the duels he entered and was triumphant in all of the aerial contests he attempted.
The skipper was victorious in two-thirds of tackles, made one block and a total of six clearances - completing an impressive all-round display as the Reds rose to second.
