"In terms of Liverpool, I totally understand and respect the external noise and the questions that have been coming my way for some time,"
Gerrard told a news conference.
"They're involved in a title race, and I spent a lot of time there. It is disappointing when people mention integrity and aim it towards me or Aston Villa or any of my players.
"We'll go out at the weekend and give it everything we've got to try to get points for Aston Villa and our supporters. If that inevitably helps Liverpool, fantastic.”
Gerrard believes Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola have created a huge gap between them and the rest of the league.
"In terms of my experience being back in the Premier League, they have been the two best sides by far that we have faced.
"Very different – one tries to hurt you with positional play and possession and one tries to hurt you with speed and intensity.
"They are both extremely consistent and have got top managers. They have both recruited extremely well over a period of time and had a lot of time to work with the team so it is no surprise that they get the results that they do."
