Welcome to Aston Villa vs Liverpool

Liverpool travel to Villa Park looking to bounce back from a disappointing draw against Tottenham, desperately needing three points to put pressure on Man City at the top of the table.

Anything but victory for the Anfield-outift would no doubt hand the Premier League title back to the reigning champions.

Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard scored 186 goals  in 710 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions but will be looking to derail the title challenge of the team that has adorned him for so many years with victory this evening.

Jacob Ramsey has been ruled out due to the groin injury that kept him out of Villa’s win over Burnley.

Leon Bailey and Kortney Hause remain on the sidelines, while Phillipe Coutinho will hope for a recall against his former club.

Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino could make his return after six matches out with a foot injury.

With the FA Cup final in mind, Jurgen Klopp may rotate his squad with Joe Gomez and Kostas Tsimikas slotting into the full-back areas.

Naby Keita, Diogo Jota and Joel Matip may all return to the starting XI with the Chelsea game on the weekend in mind.
