The force is strong with Steven Gerrard

During Liverpool's 5-3 victory over Stoke City on Sunday, Gerrard managed what many footballers have tried (and failed) to do: take control of the referee's mind. 

Approaching the 58th minute, with the referee seemingly confused as to what to do, Gerrard applied his best Obi-Wan Kenobi impression and forced the referee to do exactly what he wanted.

The result was a yellow card for Stoke's Ryan Shawcross.
