You may have heard that Steven Gerrard will return to Anfield on Saturday as his Aston Villa side arrive in strong form.
Jurgen Klopp’s side face AC Milan tomorrow and so attention has not yet completely turned to Saturday’s Premier League game it will have on the Midlands side.
Following the 2-1 win over Leicester City, our former captain was asked if there were any emotional thoughts ahead of this weekend’s game.
41 year old man says: “No, not at all. I just want to go there and try to win and try to get what I can.
“For us, we are not competing with Liverpool at the current level, but we will definitely go there and give what we have.
“We brought City into the game, and I believe we should take something from that game with our second half performance, so we go there with confidence and conviction. with three wins out of four and we go and try and make it as difficult as we can”.
No wonder he will want to win the match with all he has, there will certainly be a strange feeling or a sense of emotion when he walks on the field for the first time. since retiring.
However, we will want to beat the team of the old No. 8 and his mission is to beat us.
It will be an emotional day, even if only for the supporters, but the three points are what both teams have.
