How can Aston Villa line up under Steven Gerrard?

About Football Express UK

Aston Villa signed Steven Gerrard on a £5 million a year deal. The ex Liverpool player has been successful at Rangers and will try his best with Villa.

Steven Gerrard may play Villa under a 4-3-3 formation. Aston Villa sold boyhood player Jack Grealish for £100 million to Manchester City. They then proceeded to sign Danny Ings and Leon Bailey.

Is Steven Gerrard ready for the Aston Villa job?

Steven Gerrard won one trophy with Villa but he took them on another level. Celtic gave tough competition to the Rangers in Gerrard’s first season. They won their tenth consecutive title but in the next season, Gerrard and Rangers did the unthinkable. 

They scored 92 goals, conceded 13 goals and won 32 out of 38 games. The rangers were also unbeaten and Gerrard also left the club in a good condition. Rangers are also at the top of their group in the Europa League.

In Europe, the biggest disappointment for Gerrard was their loss in the Champions League. Rangers FC lost to Malmo in the qualifying round itself. 

Whereas in the Europa League, they have made significant progress. Even Villarreal or Benfica could not get the better of them.

The financial barrier proved to be a hindrance of Gerrard at Rangers. At Villa, he will definitely have better financial aid and can make better signings.

Steven Gerrard vs Frank Lampard? Who’s better?

Steven Gerrard

 Gerrard has scored absolute belters and bangers in his career. His most memorable performance would be the 2005 UCL final against AC Milan. The former England international scored in the final and was also the MOTM.

Liverpool has always turned to Gerrard when they needed to be rescued. He had a G/A of 356  in 748 matches and. Gerrard had 211 G/A in 504 matches in the premier league. (Source: Transfermarkt)

Frank Lampard

Lampard is regarded as one of the best midfielders of his generation.  Lampard had a great peripheral vision and could start a lethal attack easily. He had excellent spatial awareness and range of passing. He can arguably be called Chelsea’s best player.

Lampard has produced staggering numbers for Chelsea in terms of goalscoring. He has an overall G/A of 443 in his entire career in 896 games. For Chelsea, he has 293 G/A in 611 games in the premier league. (Source: Transfermarkt)
