Aston Villa manager, Steve Gerrard has reiterated that they will give out their best against Manchester City in the final Premier League game.
Gerrard made this known in an interview with Sky Sports after the team’s 1-1 draw against Burnley on Thursday.
Recall that Liverpool are counting on Villa to take a point or more from the champions, in order to keep their title bid alive.
“We’ll try and make it as difficult as we can for them. We will fight for everything we can.”
“Well, maybe from their point of view but I’m not involved in a relegation or a title, am I? I’m the Aston Villa manager. They’re three important points. We’ll have a full house there.
“We’ve got 20,000 people on a waiting list to come and watch the team so it’s my responsibility to win both games. Thank you.”
“We want two positive results,” Gerrard added. “We want to finish as strong as we can and we want to improve our league position.
“Obviously, they’re going to be two different challenges, we know that, one fighting at the top-end of the league and one at the bottom. We need to prepare for both in the best way that we can.
“Moving forward, this club cannot finish 14th again. We need to change things and come back better and stronger next season.
“The first part of the job was to stay safe, but we wanted to finish in the top half. Moving forward we need to improve in a lot of departments. We need to recruit well,” Gerrard said.
The Liverpool legend is the current boss of the West Midlands team and knows that victory for the Villains would open the door for his old club to claim the Premier League title.
Villa themselves can finish as high as ninth should results go in their favour but cannot reach any of the European places.
