A living legend and one of Liverpool's all-time great players, the return of Steven Gerrard from his six month layoff, has been met with absolute delight and joy from Liverpool fans, players and the club itself.

He's the heart and soul of the club and his return will be a major boost for the club's ambitions of at least securing a Champions League spot and maybe launch a challenge for the title.

Gerrard is one of the best players to grace the Premier League and has helped the Reds on many occasions before, especially when it comes to winning trophies.

His performance in the Champions League victory over Milan will long live in the memory, not only for Liverpool fans, but also for a neutral like me.

Many thought that the match was well and truly sealed, but a rejuvenated Liverpool side came alive in the second half and Captain Gerrard was key in one of the great comebacks in the competition's history. He led the team by the scruff of the neck, was in the heart of every move and put in a truly big game performance and helped the team lift the trophy. 

He's a top class midfielder and player, who makes powerful runs and drives to the area, great passer, creative, a super right foot and a great leader, whom the players look up to and depend on.

He was greatly missed last season and the team suffered in his absence. The team simply doesn't look the same without its captain and heartbeat in the side. He gives the team confidence when he's on the pitch, and his leadership and immense ability can help drive the team and push it to launch a challenge for the title.

He has a lot of weapons in his arsenal: from his excellent passing and vision to his great eye for the goal (140 goals in 558 appearances).

Gerrard is a top player, a player who can change and decide a match in an instant. He has the ability and character to push his team and to inspire it. If he stays fit, then he will greatly benefit the team and will be a huge boost in the club's challenge for the title.

A title which has eluded him and deserves to win.
