Gerrard still an integral part of Liverpool team, according to readers

The Anfield favourite has been given a vote of confidence from our readers to remain in Brendan Rodgers’ starting XI despite his advancing years and mixed early-season form readers believe that Steven Gerrard should not be dropped by Brendan Rodgers.

It was a close vote with barely one per cent between second and third place, and only ten per cent separating the first-place vote.

The England international has suffered with mixed form so far this season as Liverpool lie in 14th place in the Premier League with only six points from seven games.

Rodgers might feel the need to ring the changes to his current squad but the majority still feel that Gerrard has a vital part to play.

Some 40.64 per cent of readers voted that the Liverpool midfielder should not be dropped and that he remains an integral part of the team.

A large amount of our readers were undecided, believing Rodgers should consider the form of the 32-year-old before deciding whether to drop him after receiving 30.31 per cent of the vote.  

However 29.05 per cent of readers feel that the Anfield captain should be dropped and that Rodgers has better options.
