Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is hoping to see Steven Gerrard pen a new contract, with extension talks planned.

Professionalism

Rodgers added: "Steven is in the same category as (Ryan) Giggs purely because of his professionalism. "Players that go beyond a certain age have looked after themselves since they were 19 or 20. It's not by accident. "These players sleep and rest in the afternoons. They eat the right things and keep their bodyweight the same. When it comes to the point when other players get injured and can't go on, they keep playing because they've looked after themselves. "That is down to professionalism and commitment to their profession. Steven comes in every single day at the same time. He's like clockwork. He gets in early, lets the medics assess him, eats the right foods and is ready to train at 10.30am. "I have never seen him give less than 150 per cent. He never has a lazy day. "Steven is an incredible player and I have never even thought about replacing him because he has many more years left in him."
