Liverpool take on Aston Villa in this all-important and exciting Premier League match at Anfield. While Liverpool are placed 7th in the table with 49 points, Aston Villa are 5 points behind Liverpool, at the 9th position. However, in their last meeting in the reverse fixture of this season, Liverpool were humiliated and outclassed by Villa by a margin of 5 goals and the score line read 7-1. It will be interesting to see how things pan out for them in this game.
Due to a groin injury, Jordan Henderson will be missing out on this game. The injury list also includes Divock Origi, who is also likely to sit out in this fixture.
Wesley and Kourtney Hause will be missing out on this game due to their respective injuries. Jack Grealish who has been out of action for quite some time, is expected to stage a comeback.
Liverpool are coming on the back off a loss in the Champions League quarter final leg 1 and will be on their toes as they take on a side, who are quite potent. Star striker Mohammad Salah was the only scorer for Liverpool as they slumped to a defeat. Jurgen Klopp’s side will be keen on avenging their defeat earlier this season and also simultaneously solidify their top-four finish chances.
Aston Villa weaved magic in the previous fixture against Liverpool. They played some outstanding football and that reflected on the score line. Ollie Watkins had scored a hat-trick in the last fixture and he will be the marquee player of this game for Aston Villa. They are also coming on the back off a 3-1 win over Fulham. Trezeguet scored 2 goals and Watkins scored 1. Momentum will be on their side and this is a positive for them.
