The Steven Gerrard's Assist 'Nobody Talks About' But Really Should
A slept on Steven Gerrard assist is finally getting some attention on social media.
The former England skipper produced a whole host of stunning moments for his beloved Liverpool, particularly in the biggest moments when his club needed him most.
But for all the huge contributions that get highlighted, such as the heroics against West Ham in Cardiff or AC Milan in Istanbul, there are a few hidden gems.
One off Gerrard's very best passages of play came in the 2001/02 season against Arsene Wenger's Arsenal and it's doing the rounds on Twitter again.
Gerrard laid on the most ridiculous outside-of-the-boot assist for John Arne Riise to latch onto and fire home in a 1-1 draw at Highbury.
The ability to spot the pass is one thing, but to execute it with the perfect accuracy and weight is just next level.

Several players were beneficiaries of playing with Gerrard at Liverpool, with Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez just two high-profile examples.
The video shows Gerrard threading through balls to Salah, who gets on the end of them and slots home with aplomb, while there'and there's even an assist from Salah to Gerrard.
