Liverpool's head of performance Glen Driscoll is confident that captain Steven Gerrard will be able to play well into his mid-30s.
The 32-year-old, who has netted eight goals so far for the Reds this season, has played every minute of Liverpool's Premier League campaign.
"We had confidence that, if managed correctly, Steven would be able to achieve everything he has achieved this year," Driscoll told the club's official website.
"Four or five years ago, people were saying it was very unlikely that Steven, with his injury history, would ever achieve this, let alone reach the milestones he has hit this year in terms of playing time at the age of 32.
"It's a credit to Steven himself; his professionalism is second to none. Steven has confidence now that he can play at the highest level into his mid-30s. That's fantastic news for Liverpool."
Meanwhile, the England skipper is expected to start for Liverpool in their league clash against Aston Villa on Sunday.
