Steven Gerrard fires back at Michael Owen question after Liverpool beat Aston Villa

Steven Gerrard has aimed a tongue-in-cheek joke at former Liverpool striker Michael Owen

Liverpool beat Aston Villa 1-0 in the Premier League on Saturday evening and Gerrard gave a post-match interview with former Reds striker Michael Owen.

The Reds claimed a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa, who are now managed by former Liverpool skipper Gerrard in what was his first return to Anfield since leaving as a player in 2015.

Liverpool's victory came courtesy of a second half penalty from Mohamed Salah, who himself was brought down by Tyrone Mings.

Victory for the the means they trail one point behind leaders Manchester City who beat Wolves earlier in the day, and two points above Chelsea who also won their match against Leeds United.

Owen was working as a pundit for DAZN’s coverage of Liverpool’s win over Villa and conducted an interview with Gerrard post-match.

While asking Gerrard about his emotions of returning to his former club, the ex-Reds captain responded with a swift joke aimed at Owen’s expense.

"We've all played and gone back to Anfield, I must admit I hated going back to play against them," said Owen.

"But what were your emotions like going back today, and how did you feel taking a team to your home?"

Gerrard quickly responded, with a wry smile: “If I played for Manchester United I'd hate coming back here!"

Owen is one of few players to have represented both Liverpool and Manchester United in their playing career.

The former striker caused controversy when he moved to Old Trafford in 2009, a decision which has not been forgotten by Liverpool fans.
