Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard will miss the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Aston Villa at Villa Park on Boxing Day.
Gerrard tested positive for Covid on Saturday and has to isolate which means he would miss Aston Villa’s game against Chelsea.
Meanwhile, Gerrard insists he will learn more about his players when they face Chelsea later today.
He said: “You learn more about your players the better and more challenging the game is.
“We learned a lot against Liverpool and Man City even though we were on the wrong side of the result, so I’m sure Chelsea will be no different.”
