Steven Gerrard looks to have suffered more from a fantasy perspective than any other Liverpool player since the departure of Luis Suarez.
To be fair, Gerrard is getting up there in years and drop off would be expected for that reason alone. Still, there is no denying that the presence of Suarez made Gerrard fantasy relevant after a few years on ice during some non-productive seasons for the Reds. Gerrard averaged 11.5 goals and 13.5 assists the past two seasons and as we approach the 1/3rd point of this campaign, he has but two goals and one assist. His set piece work will always give him a shot at a big haul in any given match, but those opportunities, especially from the penalty spot, have been scaled back because Suarez is not there to create them. At over 15m in the Yahoo game, you are only buying because you happen to have a spare 5-8m just laying around. Nov 17 - 1:01 PM

Steven Gerrard scored a classic free kick in the 65th minute to give Liverpool the advantage over Everton in the Merseyside Derby, but the Toffees would equalize in the final minutes to leave things at a 1-1 draw.

The Merseyside Derby rarely disappoints and Gerrard's goal today was instant nostalgia. He curled an effort over the wall from just outside the box, but had enough pace on it to dip too quickly out of reach of Tim Howard. It marks Gerrard's 10th goal in his Derby career but Liverpool could not hang on to grab the three points. The Reds were a bit unlucky when a seemingly obvious case of handball by Gareth Barry was not called, but they had other chances that they can only blame themselves for not converting. Gerrard is not going to be the fantasy force he was when Luis Suarez was around, but today was vintage Stevie G.

England have been eliminated from the 2014 World Cup after Costa Rica defeated Italy 1-0.

Costa Rica are guaranteed a spot in the next round while Italy and Uruguay will battle it out for the other spot out of Group D. Italy need a win or a tie against Uruguay to go through while Uruguay obviously need to win to move on. The situation virtually creates an elimination game on Tuesday between Italy and Uruguay that's bound to be entertaining. England have hugely disappointed fans by not even winning a point from their first two games and this is the first time they've been eliminated from the group stages since 1958.

Liverpool's Steven Gerrard has been named England's captain for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Chelsea's Frank Lampard has been named vice-captain. The two midfielders come with a ton of experience and will try to break England's poor international streak. England's captains are 33 and 35 years of age, respectively, and this will most likely be their last attempt at winning a World Cup. Expect a dedicated and inspired performance as we experience the changing of the guard.

Steven Gerrard, Daniel Sturridge, Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling and Glen Johnson will all be headed to Brazil to represent England this summer.

With Liverpool's success in the league comes recognition at the national team level for their key English players. It is possible that as many as all five players will start a match with the smallest number likely being three. If Roy Hodgson really wants to attack it isn't hard to see him going with Johnson on the right, Gerrard and Henderson in the midfield engine room, Sterling wide right and Sturridge partnering Wayne Rooney. It would be a very attacking line-up for sure but even seeing four Liverpool players starting for England at the beginning of the season would have been a pretty remarkable prediction.

Liverpool finished their season with a win over Newcastle 2-1 thanks to goals assisted by Steven Gerrard, but Manchester City secured the title with a win of their own

While the last few weeks were disappointing for Pool fans when they let their fate slip by losing to Chelsea and drawing with Crystal Palace, the overall 2nd place finish is their best in five seasons and they will be playing Champions league football for the first time since then as well. Gerrard was instrumental as he has been for the majority of the season and his career, serving up two free kicks that led to the Reds two goals in the span of two minutes. Daniel Agger scored the first and then Daniel Sturridge followed with his 24th goal of the season. Brendan Rodgers has to be looked at as a positive managerial selection for LFC, but it looks like they need to address their defensive philosophy heading into the 2014/2015 campaign.

Liverpool looked well on their way to keeping themselves in the running for the title by going ahead 0-3 on Crystal Palace, but the Eagles stormed back with three goals in the span of 10 minutes to end the match 3-3, leaving the Reds' title hopes in major peril.

Everything was going according to plan as Liverpool opened the scoring when Gerrard delivered a corner to an unmarked Jon Flanagan who scored with a free header. Then in the space of five minutes in the second half, they would add two more, Daniel Sturridge's 21st and Luis Suarez's 31st of the season, and it looked as if they were determined to cut into the goal difference of Manchester City with a rout in progress. Everything changed in the 79th minute though, when Damien Delaney scored first followed by a brace from substitute Dwight Gayle as the Reds looked to have run out of steam. Liverpool had gotten away with lackluster defending throughout the season but if today's result costs them the title, they have to point to their inability to clamp down on their opponent as the reason they fell short of glory.

Steven Gerrard make a blaring mistake when he slipped and let Demba Ba have a wide open run at goal to give Chelsea a 1-0 lead at the end of the first half.

Liverpool's captain has played brilliantly as of late but the mistake could end up losing Liverpool the title. Gerrard tried desperately to fix his mistake in the second half but ended up taking too many shots from far, giving Jose Mourinho what he wanted. The good news for fantasy managers is that those shots turned into fantasy points, and Gerrard ends the day with 16 points with 4 shots on target. Gerrard remains a good fantasy options for the final two weeks of the season as he will certainly be trying to win Liverpool the title.

Liverpool ended the weekend where they started it, atop the table, thanks to two Steven Gerrard penalties against West Ham.

Gerrard's penalties on either side of a Guy Demel goal for the Hammers was enough to get Liverpool the three points despite the Reds being off of their best on Sunday. Luis Suarez went close on a few occasions but Liverpool never achieved the attacking fluency that has been their trademark this season. The cliche is that championship teams find a way to win matches when they're not at their best and that's what Liverpool did today. On to the huge showdown with Manchester City next weekend.

Steven Gerrard converted two penalty kicks as Liverpool move to within four points of league leaders Chelsea after a 0-3 thrashing of Manchester United.

United's defense were overmatched from the start, and the first of three fouls inside the box occurred when Rafael deliberately got his hand on the ball in an effort to slow down Luis Suarez. Gerrard stepped up and converted. Then, in the opening minute of the second half, Phil Jones brought Joe Allen down, and Gerrard put the Reds up by two with another spot kick. Another penalty was awarded when Nemanja Vidic was sent off, but Gerrard hit the post. Down to ten men, Luis Suarez would put the finishing touch on United's nightmare with his 25th goal of the season. With all the clubs having double gameweeks coming up, none present more appealing options than Liverpool right now, as they move to second in the league table.

Steven Gerrard put in a wonderful performance, indicative of his storied career, guiding Liverpool to a 2-3 win over Fulham, thanks to a converted penalty near the end of the game.

It was vintage Gerrard tonight, as Liverpool needed to erase two deficits before getting the chance to take all the points. Gerrard delivered a fantastic through ball to Daniel Sturridge for his 16th goal of the season, giving the captain an assist. Then, after Philippe Coutinho leveled the match, Sturridge was taken down in the box to set the club captain up with a game winning penalty kick, and he converted like he seemingly always does. It was a quiet night for Luis Suarez, though he did smash the post on one occasion. Still, it is becoming difficult to not find space for Suarez, Sturridge, and Gerrard, the way they are going right now.

Steven Gerrard was in the starting lineup against Oldham at the weekend, after coming in on the hour against Hull City on New Year's Day.

Gerrard was out for almost a month with a hamstring injury, but is now fit. His return is interesting for fantasy manager. He was a consistent player before his injury and will surely get set-piece duty back. His return could also allow Jordan Henderson to play in the more attacking role he starred in for a few matches, before injuries forced Liverpool to shuffle their formation.

Liverpool talisman, Steven Gerrard, is back in training and could be available to face Hull City on New Year's Day.

According to Brendan Rodgers, "we'll see how he is for Hull". If he doesn't feature against the Tigers, he'll surely be ready for Stoke City on 12 Jan. The Reds will be missing Joe Allen for a spell, so Gerrard's return is well timed.

Mohamed Salah, a 21-year old winger currently owned by Swiss football club FC Basel, is expected to sign with Liverpool during the winter transfer window.

The Egyptian international, who has 19 goals in 47 appearances for Basel since joining the team back in June of 2012, was scouted by Liverpool manager Brendan Rogers during his team's recent run in the UEFA Champions League. The addition of Salah could disrupt The Reds current form, but Rogers said he will not let that happen: "...we would want to reinforce the group, but it has to be players that are clearly better than what we have that can come in and help the group." The cost to bring the "Egyptian Messi" to Anfield is rumored to be around £12 million.

Steven Gerrard will miss four to six weeks with a hamstring injury he picked up during Liverpool's win against West Ham this weekend.

With Daniel Sturridge already injured and Gerrard now joining him on the sidelines, Liverpool will rely even more on Luis Suarez and Phillippe Coutinho for goals and creativity. Suarez takes over penalty duties and his value is sky high at the moment. Liverpool's title hopes take a significant hit as Gerrard will miss important matches against Manchester City and Chelsea.
