Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has praised Steven Gerrard for his performance in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Everton.
The Reds skipper scored a second-half free kick before Phil Jagielka equalised in stoppage time, and Rodgers highlighted the performance of Gerrard, who has come in for criticism for some of his displays this season.
Rodgers told the club's official website: "He is still a highly influential player and, as you saw with the free kick, he has got great quality.
"The biggest credit you can give to Stevie is that at 34 years of age, at this level, he is being man marked. I think in a couple of the games that has just showed you the level and influence that he still has on this team.
"[Steven] Naismith tried to follow and get around him, but we did some work on clearing the space so we could move him out of positions so we could get the ball in different areas."
Liverpool are currently 14th in the Premier League.
