Steven Gerrard names four best players in Premier League currently

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has named Mohamed Salah, Bruno Fernandes, Kevin De Bruyne and Virgil van Dijk as the best legs in the Premier League he wishes he could have played alongside.

Gerrard retired from playing football in 2016 after a glittering 19-year playing career.

The former Liverpool captain made 710 appearances for the Reds winning nine trophies including the Champions League.

In a Q&A with United legend Gary Neville for The Overlap, the former England captain was asked to name one current player in the Premier League he would have loved to have played with.

He said, “Mo Salah. I love Bruno Fernandes – you might agree with that. I really like him.

“Kevin De Bruyne for sure, 100 per cent, I think he’s one of the best in the world right now. Defensive-wise, I think Virgil [van Dijk] is out of this world.”

Antonio Conte names team to finish top four ahead of Tottenham

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte believes Arsenal still have an advantage in the race to finish in the top four ahead of his team.

The Italian manager did not also rule out the chances of Manchester United, Wolves and West Ham United qualifying for the Champions League next season.

Tottenham are fourth in the table at the moment though Arsenal are only three points behind them and crucially have a game in hand.

Conte said his problem is not for Tottenham to displace Chelsea in third position and feels his side still has a mammoth battle on their hands to secure top-four finish.

Addressing the press on Thursday the former Chelsea boss was asked if Spurs could push Chelsea.

“But I think first of all we have to think to ourselves and to look to ourselves and not the other opponents,” he said.

“Arsenal have one more game in their hand than us.

“But it is not just Arsenal in this race, there is Arsenal, Manchester United, West Ham, Wolves.

“I think in this race you can finish first – in this race – if you don’t make a lot of mistakes.”

Conte pointed out that the next opponents on Saturday, Brighton, are very tough and strong.
