Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard believes that he is fitter than ever going into the new Premier League season.

Steven Gerrard has said that he feels as fit as ever as he prepares for the new Premier League season.

The Liverpool captain, who recently signed a contract extension with the club, scored two goals during the club's recent pre-season tour of Asia.

When asked at a press conference whether he felt fitter than ever, the 33-year-old midfielder said: "I do, actually. But that is not just because of the pre-season work I've done so far, I think it's been over the last 14 to 16 months since I had my groin fixed, I haven't felt better.

"In pre-season so far I've done the majority of the training and played all the minutes in the games, I feel really good and strong.

"Personally, it's been the most difficult pre-season we've had and the training has been brutal. We've got a fitness coach in who has been here for close to eight months now and has put us through our paces."

Gerrard will take part in his testimonial against Olympiacos tomorrow.
