Sports

Steven Gerrard is a living legend who has led Liverpool to various successes. The Aston Villa coach won nine trophies with the Reds including the FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League, UEFA Cup and European Super Cup.

Manchester City will close the last week of the 2021/2022 Premier League by hosting Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium, Sunday (22/5/2022) at 22.00 WIB. The Citizens can face a stumbling block named Aston Villa with the figure of their coach Steven Gerrard.

Yes, Steven Gerrard is a great Liverpool legend who could thwart Manchester City’s championship party. How not, Liverpool will face Wolverhampton at the same time and also still have a chance of winning if Man City slips.

Steven Gerrard has been under intense scrutiny ahead of his team’s match against Man City. However, Gerrard firmly ensures that he will not be Liverpool’s agent to beat Manchester City.

The competition for the Premier League title this season lasted until the last match. The two teams that are still competing are Liverpool and Man City. Only one game left for both of them for the Premier League title .

Liverpool are currently one point behind Man City in the Premier League standings. In the last match, the Reds will meet Wolverhampton and in the other match there is a Man City duel against Aston Villa.

Gerrard was involved in the title-determining match. Gerrard is the manager of Aston Villa and he is a living legend for Liverpool. So, what is Gerrard’s explanation regarding his role?

Liverpool fans will always remember Liverpool’s dramatic moment when they won the 2006 FA Cup. The roller coaster of the game, Steven Gerrard’s deadly kick, and Pepe Reina’s brilliant save became the main drama that led to the title.

Steven Gerrard is an important figure in Liverpool’s history. As a player, he has not given the Premier League title to the Reds. But, as Aston Villa manager, Gerrard can ‘help’ Liverpool win by beating Man City.

However, Gerrard ensured that he and the Aston Villa players would be Liverpool’s ‘agents’ in the duel against Man City.

“I don’t think you need to worry about integrity when you talk to me, or our players or Aston Villa,” said Gerrard.

“I don’t think the word or the question is fair because we will do everything we can to fight for the three points available,” said the former England captain, quoted by the Mirror.

Realistically, Aston Villa no longer has a specific target. They are already safe from relegation and are not competing for the European zone. However, Gerrard ensured that his team did not want to lose the duel at the Etihad Stadium.

“We’re going to try to make it as difficult as we can for Man City, we know they have world class players and a world class manager but our performance was pretty good you know,” said Gerrard.

“We will try to be as compact as we can and make it as difficult as we can, but there are three points to play for from our point of view and we want to fight for every single point.” Liverpool players celebrate the goal scored by Fabinho against Leeds United in the Premier League match week four at Elland Road, Sunday

Liverpool still clings to Manchester City in second place in the standings. With a value of 89, the Reds are only one point adrift of Man City.

Liverpool will host Wolverhampton in the last weekend. Meanwhile, Man City will host Aston Villa.

Liverpool must win and hope Manchester City lose at the weekend, if they want to close the 2021/2022 Premier League with a championship trophy.

Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk celebrate a goal against KRC Genk in the 2019 Champions League match at the KRC Genk Arena, Wednesday (23/10). Liverpool won 4-1 over KRC Genk.

Two Liverpool stars, Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk are in injury condition towards the end of the competition. Though the contribution of these two players is very much needed.

Liverpool cannot play Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk against Southampton in the Premier League on Wednesday (18/5/2022). These two players are also predicted not to appear in the last match against Wolves.

Salah suffered a groin injury when Liverpool faced Chelsea in the FA Cup final. Van Dijk also injured his knee against Chelsea.

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp also believes that Salah and Van Dijk can recover in time. In fact he gave the indication earlier than the predicted time.

There is no doubt about the final and we are realistic about playing Wolves, but against Southampton they should not play,” Klopp said as quoted by Metro.
