Aston Villa manager, Steven Gerrard has said he will set up his team to “hurt” Liverpool when they clash on Tuesday.
The two teams will face each other in a rescheduled Premier League clash at Villa Park.
Last season, the Reds were hammered 7-2 on the same ground, but Gerrard knows it will be tough this time around.
However, the former England midfielder wants his team to do more than simply absorb pressure.
Gerrard said: “We’ve got to make sure we’re brave enough and show enough quality to hurt Liverpool.
“I’m never going to set a team up to just suffer for 90 minutes, but I don’t want that to be gung-ho or careless. It has to be calculated.
“At times we’ll have to suffer but if we do that together and get through those situations, we believe with the form we’re in, we’ll have some interesting moments in the game.
“That’s what Tottenham did. They were organised, they were patient. And when their moments came they did cause Liverpool some problems.”
