- Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend

Steve Gerrard has no truck with metaphors in the run-up to Sunday’s joust with Celtic. “What do you mean by lion’s den?” he responded when asked about the atmosphere round Celtic’s way. “ There’s not going to be any lions there, is there? It’s a football pitch, the same size as the one we play on at Ibrox. It’s 11 men versus 11 men.”
“I have never known a fan to win a football match. A set of fans can make noise and make the atmosphere very interesting for everyone that we can all enjoy. But it’s not a lion’s den. A lion’s den is if you jump over a cage and you’ve got four lions chasing you and you are fearing for your life.”
