Raheem Sterling believes Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard's experience and leadership skills have helped to make him a better player.

The 19-year-old has enjoyed a superlative season for the Reds and has been tipped to be part of Roy Hodgson's England squad for this summer's World Cup.

Sterling has scored nine Premier League goals this season and has been a regular starter in Brendan Rodgers' side since December.

Sterling looked set to be part of a Premier League title-winning squad this season, only for the Reds' push to be halted by last month's home defeat to Chelsea.

Liverpool, now 4.33 to win the Premier League title outright, are 8.00 to beat Crystal Palace 2-0 at Selhurst Park on Monday evening, as they attempt to keep the pressure on Manchester City, who won 3-2 in a crucial fixture at Everton on Saturday.

Sterling, 3.20 to score at any time against Palace, said of Gerrard: "He's been there, he's done it and he knows what it's like coming through and being put under pressure.

"I think he's just advised me to be calm and take it as it goes. He's given me really good advice that I've taken on board and learned from, and it's really helped me. He's a good person to have around you.

"To play at such a big club like Liverpool is a real dream come true for me, and obviously to play with the likes of Gerrard and [Luis] Suarez is sometimes hard to believe."
