Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard has said he would love to see a Premier League All-Star "north versus south game" which was suggested by Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly.

Boehly made his comments on Tuesday during an appearance in New York at the SALT Conference and said the proposed clash could be used to benefit all levels of football in England.

The American's idea was mocked by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp but Gerrard said he would be open to the suggestion.

"From a personal point of view, I'd love to see it," he told a news conference ahead of Villa's Premier League game against Southampton on Friday.
