  Buendia dropped, Bailey & 20 y/o start as Gerrard makes big calls: Predicted Villa XI - opinion A look at how Steven Gerrard's first Aston Villa line-up might look like against Brighton in the Premier League.The former Liverpool captain was appointed as Dean Smith’s replacement during the international break, and having had a few days to work with the players on the training ground, he will be keen to put his early plans into place for the visit of the Seagulls.

The England Under-19 midfielder has “grown frustrated at his lack of first-team opportunity” and “has decided his future does not lie with Villa”, according to The Guardian.

His contract at Villa Park expires in 2023, with the Red Devils, City and Liverpool reportedly eyeing up a move for the teenager.

The report adds that he has also attracted interest from Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

New head coach Steven Gerrard is unlikely to offer many opportunities to youngsters as he looks to get Villa’s season up and running.

Gerrard’s side take on Crystal Palace on Saturday, who are managed by former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira.

Speaking on the fixture, Vieira said: “I think we really enjoyed playing against each other. Every single game we played against Liverpool was a tough challenge because of Steven Gerrard.

“He was a real leader, a real captain and was one of the best players in that position. He was part of those players who changed the role of the holding midfielder.

“Every game against Liverpool, I remember some like the (2001) final in the FA Cup that we lost but we had some games where we got the result so some good games.”

Gerrard is also looking forward to taking to the dugout against his former on-pitch rival.

He said: “I had many battles against Patrick, some highs, some lows. He was certainly a player you could really go and compete against. You could kick him, fight him, compete against him and he’d shake your hand after the game.

“He was a top, top footballer and one of the toughest battles I ever faced in terms of being a player, and I expect the same to be the case from the side. I know he’s a winner.”
