Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa will host English Premier League title hopefuls Liverpool in a Tuesday night encounter.

Gerrard is out to further dent his former clubs title hopes after the reds were held to a 1-1 draw by Tottenham on Saturday.

The defeat leaves Liverpool in second place with 83 points, three adrift of leaders Manchester City.

Villa on the other hand are seeking a third consecutive win after an impressive 3-1 victory against relegation-threatened Burnley.

The home team have bagged 7 points from an available 9 in their last three games and could break into the EPL top 10.

A 12-game winning run at Anfield in the Premier League came to an end for Liverpool at the weekend, but their unbeaten run domestically now stands at 16 matches.

Villa have failed to score in three of their last five Premier League games at home, while the Reds have failed to do so just once this campaign.

Mohamed Salah scored the lone goal as Liverpool beat Villa 1-0 in the reverse fixture last December.
