Liverpool legend and current Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard has revealed he will go all out to beat Manchester City on the final day.
The Citizens and The Reds are currently caught up in an exciting title race that will be decided on the final day. When things settle down, Man City is leading Liverpool by one point over the second-placed team.
Jurgen Klopp’s side host Wolverhampton Wanderers, while Manchester City host Aston Villa to the Etihad Stadium.
Speaking to BBC Sport ahead of the game, Gerrard said he would want to give Villa fans a nice treat for the season.
“Our supporters deserve it [a good performance against Manchester City on Sunday]. We’re in 14th place.”
“The fans are amazing, watching us near and far. The least we can do is try to make them proud. “
“We can’t control people asking us questions [about the title race]. We just have to focus on preparing as best we can. There are three points to play. “
Aston Villa entered the match with a 1-1 draw at home to Burnley. Ashley Barnes put the Clarets ahead in stoppage time, while Emiliano Buendia equalized for Villa three minutes into the restart.
Manchester City also dealt with part of the spoils as they bounced back from two goals at half-time to claim a 2-2 draw at West Ham United.
Steven Gerrard’s relationship with Liverpool was also a driving factor against Manchester City
Steven Gerrard is considered by many to be the greatest Liverpool player in history and has left an indelible mark on the club.
Despite leaving Anfield in 2015, the former England international remains a firm Koplip at heart.
He has watched the club’s recent success keenly and is occasionally featured at Anfield for games.
Merseyside fans will be hoping their legend can help the club by driving his side to a win over Manchester City.
The Citizens need a win to secure their fourth title in five years but Aston Villa could prove one that is hard to break.
Pep Guardiola’s side come in as overwhelming favourites, but the unpredictability of the Premier League means anything is possible.
Two prominent teams in England’s top league resume a decisive race on the final day. Maybe the best team will win.
