Villa looked to pull themselves level soon after as John McGinn forced David de Gea into a fine save with a stinging effort from the edge of the box for their first real effort at goal. Gerrard played with Coutinho at Liverpool and believes the playmaker will have a big impact on his return to the Premier League. Villa preserved their bright spell seconds from the half-hour mark and saw the woodwork deny Ollie Watkins who managed to get a looping ball in-field and goal-sight. “His presence will be invaluable, given injuries and the AFCON tournament have reduced our attacking options,” Gerrard told Villa’s website on Monday. Ralf Rangnick's charges carved out a couple more chances in the latter parts of the half but they were unable to find the second goal. “He is a player I enjoyed playing with previously and I know the rest of the squad here at Aston Villa will benefit from his quality and experience. Our roads are full of potholes.

” Villa have signed Coutinho on loan for the rest of the season and have the option to buy him in the summer. With Villa dominating in the second half, Rangnick decided to introduce Donny van de Beek for Cavani with 20 minutes left on the contest and they nearly doubled their lead soon after but Mason Greenwood was denied by Emiliano Martinez. The Clarets still fashioned in chances of their own inside the closing quarter with Matthew Cash’s snap shot from outside the area forcing a smart save off goalkeeper David De Gea. Barcelona confirmed Villa will pay part of Coutinho’s wages as he returns to the Premier League four years after leaving Liverpool. Coutinho joined Barcelona in 2018 in a deal worth £146 million ($198 million), but he has struggled at the Nou Camp and spent 2019-20 on loan at Bayern Munich.
