Steven Gerrard vowed to keep fighting on as Aston Villa manager, before he was fired after their 3-0 defeat to Fulham at Craven Cottage.

With pressure mounting on Gerrard ahead of this must win game, the pressure continued to build as goals from Harrison Reed, Aleksandar Mitrovic and a Tyrone Mings own goal capped off by Douglas Luiz red card for a headbutt an abysmal night for Gerrard.

The result leaves Aston Villa above the relegation zone on goal difference, with just two wins this season and only seven goals scored, while defensive mistakes have constantly let them down.

It looked so promising for Gerrard when he took over, just moths after winning the Scottish Premier League with Rangers. While the signings of Philippe Coutinho, Diego Carlos and Leander Dendoncker, it looked as though Aston Villa were showing some real ambition this season.

However, quite ironically, when speaking after the game, Steven Gerrard decided to use the same quotes as Liz Truss, who earlier today resigned as the British Prime Minister.

“It’s tough but I’m a man, I accept it, I understand it. We’ll see what happens.

I’m a fighter, I will never ever quit anything. Quitting is not in my DNA. I understand the situation. The performance was miles away from how we looked at the weekend.

The reality is that it’s not good enough for this football club"

Just like the British public and members of the Conservative Party, the Aston Villa crowd have turned against Steven Gerrard following tonight’s defeat.

Steven Gerrard has come back from tough situations in his playing days with Liverpool, but it never worked out at Aston Villa, with the club, just like the British government, looking for a new leader to guide them to safety.
