Aston Villa: Ashley Preece shares Jacob Ramsey fitness update

Aston Villa: Ashley Preece shares Jacob Ramsey fitness update -Aston Villa News

Aston Villa journalist Ashley Preece has said that Jacob Ramsey is a ‘big doubt’ for the Villans’ upcoming Premier League clash against Liverpool

The lowdown

Steven Gerrard’s side will look to move into the top half and further dent the Reds’ title hopes when the two teams meet at Villa Park on Tuesday night.

Ramsey missed Saturday’s 3-1 victory away to Burnley at the weekend after limping out of training.

He features on a three-man injury list alongside Leon Bailey, who is expected to return before the end of  the campaign after he was forced off against Norwich City; and Kortney Hause, who hasn’t featured since March because of an abdominal issue.

The latest

Preece tweeted that Ramsey is ‘a big doubt’ to play against Liverpool as a result of a ‘small groin problem’.

The reporter relayed quotes from Gerrard, who said of the 20-year-old’s convalescence: “He won’t be long. We’re hoping to get him involved in the squad against Liverpool but that’s looking ambitious right now.”

The verdict

This would be a blow to Gerrard’s chances of causing an upset against his former club.

Ramsey is one of the players the 41-year-old has trusted the most, with the youngster’s recent issue interrupting a run of 19 consecutive Premier League starts.

Villa coped well without their third-highest scorer of the season at Turf Moor, but title-chasing Liverpool should pose a far more difficult test than relegation-threatened Burnley.

The £19.8m-rated gem turned in a decent performance in the reverse fixture at Anfield in December, winning six of the 10 duels that he contested, drawing three fouls and completing two dribbles (via SofaScore).

Gerrard has previously described him as a ‘top talent’ who is in a ‘wonderful place’, and the Liverpudlian native must be gutted that Ramsey looks set to miss the visit of Jurgen Klopp’s side to the Midlands.
