Goal look at the best stats from a career spanning nearly two decades, which included over a century of caps for England and a stunning knack of scoring in tournament finals

The 36-year-old made 710 outings for his boyhood club, of which his total of 504 in the Premier League is only narrowly bettered by record-holder and long-time team-mate Jamie Carragher.

During 17 years in England's top flight, Gerrard scored 120 goals and registered 92 assists and was named in the PFA Premier League team of the year a record eight times.

Gerrard's crowning achievement at Liverpool was captaining his team to the stunning come-from-behind win over AC Milan in the 2005 Champions League final.

Indeed, the midfielder is the only player to score in an FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League and Uefa Cup final.

Aston Villa were most punished by Gerrard's scoring exploits, having conceded 12 goals from the midfielder in the Premier League.

Everton were not far behind, with the 36-year-old netting 10 goals across all competitions in Merseyside derbies.

In total, Gerrard made 114 appearances for England, with only David Beckham, Wayne Rooney and record-holder Peter Shilton ahead of him, and contributed 21 goals.

Gerrard's first strike for England came in the famous 5-1 victory at Germany in September 2001, and his last came against Poland in October 2013.
