Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has hinted that the club will offer Steven Gerrard a new contract at the end of the season.

Goodison park played host to the 219th Merseyside Derby as Liverpool visited Everton looking to turn their season around.

I recently spent a couple of interesting days at the Sports Analytics Innovation Summit in London. Held at the beautiful Oval cricket ground, I learned quite a bit, and enjoyed presentations by people like Manchester City's Simon Wilson, Chelsea's Ben Smith, and Manchester United's Tony Strudwick. The one talk that still sticks in my mind, but perhaps for all the wrong reasons, was by Bill Gerrard, a professor at the University of Leeds.
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard insists there can be no excuses from new signing Daniel Sturridge after his £12million arrival at Anfield.

The young Arsenal star Jack Wilshere has been continually over-hyped since his return to fitness this season, and has been hailed as the saviour of the England team and perhaps the catalyst that could finally win the World Cup for England for the first time in 48 years.

Jack Wilshere got his first goal of the season for Arsenal last weekend, and would like to score more, obviously, but it is not something that the youngster is overly concerned about.
