Gerrard's Answer When Asked The Salah, Suarez Or Torres Question

Gerrard's Answer When Asked The Salah, Suarez Or Torres Question

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard answered the all-important question of who would rather have: Fernando Torres, Luis Suarez or Mo Salah.

The former skipper had a glorious understanding with Torres in the peak of his powers under Rafa Benitez, and then had the pleasure of seeing Suarez strut his stuff at Liverpool, where the Uruguayan scored 82 goals in 133 appearances.

Gerrard has also been in awe of Salah, who has now scored 32 goals this season - one more than Suarez managed in his best campaign on Merseyside.

And though it was a tough question to answer, the former England man went for Suarez - though did note that Salah could get the edge in the future with the way he is going.

"Fernando had a great phase at Liverpool, but Suarez did it for longer," Gerrard said on the BT Sport live stream.

"And I believe if he was at Liverpool now he would still be hitting a 30 goal return.

"He also did an awful lot more away from the goals as well, assisting goals and the work rate he used ton put in for the team. So for me I'll be biased towards Suarez.

"But, if Salah goes on to continue to be consistent over a number go years and add silverware, that would give him an advantage over Torres and Suarez because they never won much."

Having struggled in his first stint in England with Chelsea, Salah has been an utter revelation this season and has 24 league goals to his name, which is quite remarkable when you consider he's a wide player rather then a centre-forward.

Gerrard has an explanation as to why he's bagged so many goals and shed light in an interview with the official Liverpool website.

"If the ball went out wide, I'd always attack areas where you can get goals," he explained.

"That's where my numbers as a midfielder grew. And that's what Jurgen has done to him [Salah].

"When Jurgen signed him he has said to him, 'I don't want you stuck out wide on the wings creating for other people, I want you to be the main man. You're going to be the top scorer in this team, so attack the sticks and attack central areas.'"

Will Salah reach Torres/Suarez heights?
