Steven Gerrard says he's not concerned about the Premier League title race.

The visitors are still in the hunt for the title, three points behind Manchester City, with three games to go.

Gerrard insists his focus is on Villa:

Kick off this evening is at 8pm.

Graham Burke scored a hat-trick in 14 minutes to help Shamrock Rovers move to the top of the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division last night.

Derry City dropped to second having been held to a nil-all draw by St Pat's.

Shamrock Rovers play Derry on Friday night.
