Liverpool legend, Steven Gerrard says he has no sentimental thoughts ahead of his return to Anfield this Saturday and has emphasized that he will set up his team to take up all three points.

Following his switch from Rangers to Aston Villa a couple of weeks ago, the Kop favorite will take up a seat in the opposite dugout at Anfield for the first time in his managerial career.

Gerrard has picked up an incredible 9 points out of a possible 12 during the short period, with the only defeat coming against a strong Manchester City.

In fact, the new Villa boss takes inspiration from the performance in the defeat to City and says he will try to win at Anfield.

When asked by Sky Sports after the win over Leicester whether he has any sentimental thoughts about returning to Anfield, Gerrard said: “None, none at all.

“I just want to go there and try to win and take what we can. For us, we’re not competing with Liverpool, in terms of the level we’re both at, at the moment, but we’ll certainly go there and give it everything we’ve got.

“We took (Manchester) City to the wire and I believe we should have taken something out of the game with our second-half performance.

“So we go there with confidence and belief, with three wins out of four, and we’ll try and make it as difficult as we can.”

Gerrard ready for a date with Liverpool destiny

Steven Gerrard will take his place in the dugout at Anfield for the first time on Saturday. It will be one of the most significant matches of his managerial career.

For now, he will take up a position opposite the man currently occupying the role that will always be his managerial destiny.

It will be strange to see Gerrard wearing a lion rather than a liver bird on his jacket as he looks to continue his impressive start with Aston Villa.

While he may not admit it, Liverpool away would have been the first fixture Gerrard would have hoped for following his move from Scottish giants Rangers. Nevertheless, he will be keen to keep his emotions in check when he returns to his former club.
