Liverpool legend Gerrard: We can all be excited about Everton kid Tom Davies


Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard admits he’s a big fan of Everton midfielder Tom Davies.

The youngster has been a big revelation for the Toffees this season.

“I think the one to be excited about at Everton is Tom Davies, who seems to have broken in and stayed in,” said Gerrard on the Live Premier League Tonight show.

“Terrific footballer, scored a few exciting goals.

“What he has done is he has announced himself and basically said to a regular starter: ‘I am taking your place. I am staying in there’. And they are the ones that usually go on to become superstars.”

Gerrard is convinced by Davies’ drive.

“You have to be obsessed. When you get that little sniff, that little bit of hope . . . even though they’re your team-mates, you’ve got to be obsessed to move them out of the way, and once you’re in, they’re staying out of the way and they’re not coming back.”
