Aston Villa have failed to score in their last two premier League games, and Steven Gerrard has been talking about coutinho, Watkins and other attacking players.Speaking of philippe Coutinho’s arrival from Barcelona at Portsmouth, Gerrard said: “I think from a physical point of view his numbers are on the same level as most, if not better.The distance he ran, the sprint speed, the acceleration, it didn’t look like there was a big gap after a few races.””I think his body is 100 percent healthy now.So, physically, we believe him.””If you judge this loan move by his performances, there is no doubt it was a positive move.Against Watford he was the one who tried very hard, maybe too hard in some cases, but in terms of his creativity I give him full credit because that is what we need.We need to start creating more threatening opportunities.”Gerrard said: “I like what I see from Ollie every day. He works very hard in training.He’s a good boy and I trust him completely.””He has shown he can score goals and play very well.When we first took the job, he was probably the most positive and consistent player in the first few games.””Every player has their ups and downs at different times in their career and Ollie’s form will bounce back and he will come back in better shape.”We just have to guide him in the right way from all sides.We decided last week to hide his shine at the start of the game and give Danny [Ince] a chance, and Ollie came on as a substitute and tried to make a difference.”We haven’t scored in recent games as a team and it shouldn’t be pointed at Ollie, it’s the whole attacking line.We need to be more ruthless and decisive in the third zone, and I’m sure we can get back to that.”(Albanian)
