Liverpool v Aston Villa team news

Liverpool: The hosts are likely to still be without Jordan Henderson, while Ozan Kabak and Nat Phillips will most probably start at centre-back.

With the Reds to face Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-finals four days after this game, Klopp could be tempted to rest some of his key men on Saturday.

Villa: Dean Smith's big concern will be surrounding the fitness of Jack Grealish, who was once again unavailable for last weekend's win over Fulham. That's seven games the England international has now missed with a shin injury.

After coming off the bench to net a brace against Fulham, Trezeguet could be line to start against the champions.

Our prediction: Liverpool v Aston Villa

Liverpool have found some good form again after their winter slump, and have won the last three in all competitions, while Phillips and Kabak are looking much more solid at the heart of defence.

Meanwhile, Villa have been inconsistent of late and have won just once in the last five and have struggled in Grealish's absence.

Liverpool simply can't afford to drop points if they're to make the top four and should just nick this one.

Our prediction: Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa (8/1 at bet365)
