Steven Gerrard has seen his Aston Villa team experience frustrating inconsistency since he took over from Dean Smith back in November.

Yet despite their inability to put a significant run together, they are still in with an outside shout of finishing in the top 10 at the end of the Premier League season.

A win against Burnley would take them to within a single point of the top half heading into the final day of the campaign.
