Aston Villa fullback Matt Lowton is looking forward to their trip to Liverpool.

Lowton will once again look to starve Steven Gerrard of the ball at Anfield today.

The last time the two met, Lowton was a ball-boy for Sheffield United against Liverpool.

Lowton said: "We were leading but they got a second-half penalty after Steve went down. I did all I could not to give him the ball after that."
