'A shame Stevie can't play' - Jurgen Klopp hoping for Steven Gerrard help as Liverpool and Man City battle for title
Steven Gerrard never managed to win a Premier League title with Liverpool during his time at the club but he could propel them into first on the final day of the season should his Aston Villa side beat Manchester City at the Eithad. If Villa beat or draw with Man City, and Liverpool win, then Jurgen Klopp's side will be crowned champions.

Jurgen Klopp joked that he wished Steven Gerrard could play for Aston Villa on the final day of the season and hopes the former Liverpool legend's side can help sway the title race.
Villa need to avoid defeat against leaders Manchester City to give Liverpool a chance of winning the title. If Liverpool beat Wolves and City draw or lose at home to Villa, the Reds will be crowned champions.
While the odds are stacked against them with City in fine domestic form and playing their final match at the Etihad, Klopp said Villa manager Gerrard might find extra motivation for his old club.
