Steven Gerrard has picked his top five Premier League players for the 2019/20 season and four of them come from Liverpool.

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard was asked about his picks for Premier League player of the year.

The Merseyside legend picked almost all Liverpool players. While some would cry bias, it really is hard to disagree with him.

Speaking to The Athletic he believes that there is one clear favorite and most would agree with him.

He said:

“If Henderson got it I don’t think anyone could argue or grumble.” 

“He would deserve it as much as anyone else who is in the running for it.”

“I try to be non-biased when I talk about things like this.”

“Kevin De Bruyne has been superb this season. The same goes for Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan, and Sadio Mane.”

“Any of them would deserve it. Would I like to see Jordan win it? Yes, I would.”

“I’d also like to see him win the Football Writers’ award. In this day and age, with what we’re going through and what we’ve seen of late, he’s someone who commits himself to the game and is a real ambassador and role model on and off the pitch.”

“It’s the way he goes about his work, the quality he has shown consistently, and his leadership skills.”

“I think Jordan is certainly deserving to be in the running for both. If he got both I’d be very pleased for him.”

Is Jordan Henderson a deciding factor in Liverpool’s probable Championship winning season?
