Steven Gerrard will be making his 700th career appearance for Liverpool FC in the club's FA Cup match against Bolton Wanderers on Wednesday, as it was revealed he will be in the Reds' starting XI earlier in the day.
The club's official Twitter feed congratulated the legendary midfielder on the astonishing feat:
The 34-year-old, who is playing his last season at Liverpool before moving to MLS to join LA Galaxy, will become just the third player in club history to clock 700 total appearances. He joins Ian Callaghan and Jamie Carragher, with the latter taking to Twitter to welcome him to the club:
Gerrard joined the Reds' youth setup in 1987 and has never represented another club, becoming a legend at Anfield and one of the top midfielders in Premier League history in the process.
He played a key role during the infamous 2005 Champions League final against AC Milan and also won the FA Cup, Football League Cup and the Community Shield during his time with Liverpool. The Premier League title is one trophy that has so far eluded him.
As shared by the Daily Telegraph's Henry Winters, he's unlikely to surpass Callaghan or Carragher before the end of the current season:

The former England international is already a legend at Anfield and will undoubtedly be celebrated for many more years, even after leaving the club for MLS. It's only fitting he now gets to join such an exclusive club, and fans must hope the veteran will deliver a win over Bolton to mark the occasion.
