Steven Gerrard primed for emotional Liverpool return with Aston Villa.


As much as Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard may protest that his mind is focused purely on his team beating Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturda, there can be no denying the emotions his return to Anfield will stir up.

A Liverpudlian who joined the team’s youth set-up as a nine-year-old, Gerrard went on to make 710 appearances for the club, most famously captaining them to their astonishing comeback in the 2005 Champions League final win over AC Milan.

He played his final game for Liverpool at Anfield in 2015 and had a spell as a youth coach in the academy before taking on the manager’s job at Scottish club Rangers.
