Liverpool have successfully dragged the title race to the last day of the season and will be hoping on their former captain for a big favour.
Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has told his former side to concentrate on getting their job done against Wolverhampton Wanderers as he’s assured that his Aston Villa side will come with their A game.

The Villans travel to the Etihad this weekend to take on Manchester City in the season’s final game with Liverpool needing Gerrard to lead his men in avoiding a City win while they themselves look to overcome Wolves at home.
Just one point separate the two teams with City retaining a superior goal difference should they be tied on points at the end of the day.
The 2005 Champions League winner has however given his assurance on his team coming out in their best form despite having nothing but pride to play for on the day.
Asked if Villa will be coming with their A game, the Villa manager told beIN Sports: “I don’t think you ever have to worry about integrity when you are talking to me, or any of our players or Aston Villa.
“I don’t think that word or that question is fair because we are going to do everything we can to fight for the three points that are available.” Gerrard had explained the aim for his side on Sunday during the question prior.
Gerard will be more than fulfilled should he help Liverpool win a Premier League title by virtue of denying City victory considering he failed to lift the trophy in his 17 years at Anfield.
Everton have officially retained their status in the Premier League for yet another season with Arsenal being the only club that has spent the most consecutive years in the league without suffering relegation.
Everton by the start of next season will enter their 69th season in the top flight without going down any level, a number bettered only by Arsenal’s 97.
The Toffees looked like they would wait until the last day of the season before knowing their fate as Crystal Palace raced into a 2-0 halftime lead at Goodison Park.
However, Frank Lampard’s men would come out from their shell in the second period as goals from Michael Keane, Richarlison and Dominic Calvert Lewin gave them a resounding comeback victory against the Eagles to confirm their top flight status in a unique fashion.
