Gerrard has to figure out the best way to incorporate a plethora of attacking talent into his team sheet each game.

Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings are both sharp strikers, but neither have yet shown their best form when playing together.

"I see it very much as a positive problem, if there's such a thing," said Gerrard, per Express and Star.

"For me, it would be more of a challenge and more of a problem if Danny and Ollie could only play as number nines – if they were the same type and had the same style.

"They're both talented enough and have great game awareness. They can adapt. They can both play as a number nine, a number 10. They can both rotate.
