Speaking on the Athletic podcast ‘Why Always Us?‘, journalist Jack Pitt-Brooke has claimed rival midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is ‘Steven Gerrard 2.0‘ – prompting many Liverpool supporters to debate this notion in response. 

De Bruyne, who has bagged 16 assists in 25 Premier League starts this season for our fierce title rivals, impressive numbers by any feat, is now at the centre of debate on Twitter following the opinion that he could be Gerrard’s equivalent.

In response to James Pearce’ tweet on the matter, reinforcing our fanbase’s point of view that the two players are incomparable, plenty of Reds have lambasted the notion that De Bruyne could be seen as another Gerrard – with one fan even claiming our former club captain was ‘on the same level as Messi‘.

Who is better?

Another supporter also asked rival supporters to ‘take a seat‘ in the debate, especially considering the current Rangers manager totalled an impressive 481 league starts over an 18-year Anfield career.
