Gerrard Joins 15-Year Premier League Goalscorer Club

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard broke another Anfield record after scoring from the penalty spot in Saturday's comfortable 3-1 victory over struggling Crystal Palace.

The 33-year-old midfielder netted his 99th Premier League goal, and in doing so, became only the seventh player in English top-flight history to score in 15 (or more) consecutive seasons, and the first to do it with the Merseyside club.

It's a run that stretches all the way back to 1999/2000, when the England captain fired his first senior goal for Liverpool in a 4-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday.
