Aston Villa head into the contest on a high following back to back wins against strugglers Norwich and Burnley. The 3-1 win at Turf Moor at the weekend would have allayed any relegation fears that the Villans may have had. Goals from Danny Ings, Emi Buendia and Ollie Watkins capped off a good day at the office for Gerrard.
Villa is currently in eleventh place and will now be targeting a top half of the table finish after picking up seven points from a possible nine on offer. That said, Villa has only won twice in their last eight Premier League encounters and will be expecting a backlash from a Liverpool side who are just clinching on in the title race.
