Steven Gerrard is a true Liverpool legend. 

The English midfielder is about to enter his 16th season playing for the Reds. 

To celebrate his prolific career, here is a look at some of Gerrard's career highlights in terms of appearances, goals and assists during his time at Anfield.

First up, goals: The Liverpool skipper has notched 159 total goals in all competitions while playing for the famous English club.  His most productive season in terms of goals was during 2008-09.  Gerrard notched 24 goals in all competitions, including 16 in the English Premier League. 

Known to strike the ball with extreme velocity from distance, the attacking midfielder is two shy of the century mark in English Premier League goals, having scored 98 total goals so far. 

Including all EPL seasons (even his debut campaign in which he did not tally), Gerrard has averaged 6.5 goals per domestic campaign. 

He has bagged seven goals twice in European competitions, during 2005-06 and 2008-09.

In the FA Cup during the 2005-06 season, he scored four goals, the highest FA Cup goal total in his career.  

He has been able to reach the 20 goal mark in all competitions on three occasions: 2005-06, 2007-08, and 2008-09.

Here is a look at his career appearances in all competitions:

Gerrard has been a constant in the Liverpool lineup since the 1999-2000 Premier League season, making more than 20 appearances in all but two seasons since his career started in 1999. 

He has failed to play in a European match for the Reds in only two seasons.  His most European matches in one season came during the 2001-02 campaign in which he competed in 15 matches. 

Nine assists marks the most he has been able to dish out during an EPL season.  Gerrard has reached that figure on two occasions, according to Opta.
