The head coach provided a team news update, reflected on the current league table, the club’s form and the test his club will face against the Foxes.
Here are the most important talking points from the gaffer';s press conference.
On facing Leicester
"They're a good team. We're playing against a team full of talented players who can be really dangerous when they're playing well.
"But also a team who, like ourselves, have been a little bit inconsistent of late. It's a good game, it will be a fascinating game and one we're looking forward to."
On the reverse fixture
"It was very pleasing to win the game. Leicester came to Villa Park full of talented players.
"To go a goal down, the characters that the players showed, the buzz and the high after the game was very much about the three points and how we went about it."
On team news
Gerrard provided a fitness update on key players ahead of the visit to the King Power Stadium.
"Bertrand Traore came out of training with a groin complaint, so he'll be out for the game. We'll probably do an MRI scan on that, but the doctor has ruled Bertrand out.
On the team's current form
The Villains have dropped four in a row, suffering a heavy 4-0 defeat to Tottenham last time out to slip to 15th in the table.
"We've spoken about it before, we've made mistakes within games, we've had moments that have gone against us and we've been punished heavily for that.
"There are opportunities for us to grab points and i'm sure the mood, the table and how everyone's feeling will be completely different."
