Premier League Legend and Current Aston Villa Manager Steven Gerrard will host Chelsea on Aston Villa’s ground Villa Park on Boxing day in a Premier league encounter. The Blues head into the game having struggled in their last two League games as they were held to a draw at Stamford Bridge by Everton before playing a Goalless at Molineux Stadium against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

However, Chelsea will be in a high spirit during the trip to Aston Villa having won their last encounter in the Quarterfinals of the EFL Cup against Brentford. The Blues thrashed the Bees 2-0 at the Brentford community Stadium.

Thomas Tuchel’s Squad has also been boosted by the return of Romelu Lukaku and Callum Hudson-Odoi who were both absent during the league encounters against Everton and Wolverhampton Wanderers due to illness from Covid-19.

However, Steven Gerrard who will be hoping to avenge the 3-0 defeat that Aston Villa suffered at Stamford bridge earlier in this season under Dean Smith isn’t bothered by the return of Romelu Lukaku.

The Former Liverpool Captain has one Chelsea Player on his mind as his team prepares to host Chelsea, and it’s not N’Golo Kante.

According to Metro UK, While speaking in a Press Conference ahead the match against Chelsea, Steven Gerrard opened up about being a big Fan of Mason Mount and hoped that Mason Mount doesn’t perform brilliantly against his side on Sunday.

Gerrard said: “I’ve watched his progress, of course I have. He’s a big talent for the country. I’m a massive fan of Mason. He plays with a smile on his face. He can create, he can score and he’s already a European Cup winner, so I don’t think he needs the likes of myself to big him up or praise him. But I must say I’m a fan. I just hope he doesn’t have such a strong performance at the weekend.”

Mason Mount endured a tough start at beginning of this season before a hat trick against Norwich City in October and subsequent goals against Watford, West Ham United, Leeds United and Everton helped him to jumpstart his Goalscoring prowess this term.

He has now scored 7 league goals this season which is almost double of what he managed last season. The 22-year-old will be hoping to continue his fine form against Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa on Sunday while Gerrard will seeking to make that hard for him.
