Fans Are Loving Steven Gerrard's Hilarious Reaction To Kicking The Match Ball At Full-Time

Fans are loving Steven Gerrard's reaction to kicking the match ball away at full-time of Everton vs. Aston Villa. 

Gerrard's Villa secured three big points at Goodison Park on Saturday as Emi Buendia​ cleverly headed home in first-half injury time. 

​Naturally, the 41-year-old received a hostile reception due to his legendary ties with Liverpool, but he played up to the raucous atmosphere.

He stared down the Everton faithful at the break and continued his jovial mood at the final whistle.

Gerrard's "still got it" comment directly to the match cameras got fans talking. 

One tweeted: "Stevie G loves it you know."

​And speaking after the 1-0 win, the Villa boss spoke of his players' grit:​ "If they wanted a war and if they wanted a fight, we were all-in and we were prepared to play that style of game."

He added:​ "It was important in the opening 15 or 20 minutes that we showed the crowd here that if Everton wanted a war and if they wanted a fight, we were all-in and we were prepared to adapt and prepared to play that style of game.

"There's different ways to win football matches and, of course, there's an ideal way of playing this lovely game with style and control but, coming here to Goodison today, we knew collectively we would have had to show a different side to us.

"John McGinn was fighting for everything. We missed him last week against United and, to have him today, showed how important he is for Villa.

"It was a really standout performance from John again.​"
