Steven Gerrard aiming to hurt his former side Liverpool and put a dent on their title hope when they meet at Villa Park.

Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard is aiming to put a dent on Liverpool title hope when they meet later today.

The former Liverpool captain side will host Jurgen Klopp’s men this evening as the Premier League title race continues.

Tottenham played 1-1 draw with the Reds last week which reduced Liverpool’s point on the League table.

Meanwhile, speaking ahead of the game at Villa Park Gerrard insists he has huge respect for his former side but won’t be friendly when they meet.

“Liverpool are a world-class team. Arguably, the best team in the world right now. We’re well aware of the challenge,” said Gerrard.

“I’ve spoken many times about how I respect the coach and the coaching staff there. You either fear that or you put your shoulders back and try to take it on and find situations where you can have your moments in the game.

“Every team on the planet, historically or now, there’s always areas or situations that happen in a game where you can hurt them.

“We’re well aware of the size of the challenge, but it’s exciting and I’m looking forward to it. Big games of football are what it’s all about.”
