Rafael Benitez has praised Steven Gerrard's attitude after seeing his captain excel in an unfamiliar role on the wide right of midfield during Liverpool's recent run of good form.
Over the last month the Reds have clocked up an impressive five Premiership wins on the bounce and secured qualification to the knockout phase of the Champions League.

Gerrard has been employed on the right-hand side of midfield in six out of the last seven matches and Benitez is in doubt that the switch has played a major part in Liverpool's outstanding run.

"Steve is a player who can play all positions," says the Anfield boss. "He likes to play in the centre because he receives more balls and plays more of the game, but at the moment he has freedom on the right.

"He is the captain and I talk with him about my ideas. He was a key player for us last season but now I think he is more responsible - not because I tell him he has to be but because he plays that way. I think he's more happy."
