Though Steven Gerrard's season has been relatively disappointing, when played, Gerrard has shown he is still performing at the highest level. His injury spells have taken time from Captain Fantastic but have left him with a point to prove. He will be out there to prove he has lost none of his class or reliability, and he is still the undisputed best midfielder in England.
To put things into perspective, in a recent poll, Steven Gerrard was voted one of the best players ever to grace the Premier League. Yes, it's the very same player that will be returning to the Liverpool lineup.
In fact, Gerrard has just made an impact, by coming off the bench. The lift he gives Anfield is immeasurable. The passing is quicker and Liverpool just became a better side. I don't know why, but Gerrard has that effect on Anfield. He owns the place.
I can't think of a superlative fitting enough for Captain Fantastic, so I'll go with something that I was told today that sums up Steven Gerrard: "He is like a positive ball of energy." He certainly is just that.
Maybe, just maybe, if Gerrard can stay fit, Liverpool can reach Europe once more.
