Liverpool are back at Anfield to face an Aston Villa side desperate for three Premier League points


Liverpool return to Anfield on Sunday for the first time since being crowned Premier League champions, but with their tails between their legs.


Thursday’s 4-0 defeat to second-place Manchester City was a wake-up call for manager Jurgen Klopp, who will expect a reaction against Aston Villa here.

Focus is also on Villa as they desperately seek points to avoid relegation, with only six Premier League fixtures remaining.

Villa will arrive at Anfield knowing even a point would greatly boost their survival chances.

And if Klopp decides to rest some men after the midweek loss to City, this could be a closer game than the table suggests.

Liverpool v Aston Villa team news

Liverpool: Joel Matip is out for the rest of the season with a foot injury, meaning Klopp has just two fit centre-backs.

However, Dejan Lovren could be passed fit for Sunday, while the manager may well tinker with his forward options.

Aston Villa: Matt Targett is a worry with a hamstring problem picked up in the defeat to Wolves, while Bjorn Engels is out.

Frederic Guilbert could finally return from a knee issue. Tom Heaton and Wesley are definitely out, but Danny Drinkwater could return to the XI and John McGinn is tipped to start after being rested to the bench last time out.

Our prediction: Liverpool v Aston Villa

Liverpool endured a major hangover from their title-winning celebrations when they lost 4-0 at City in midweek.

And Villa better beware of a Reds reaction here as they return to Anfield for the first time since being crowned champions.

Villa will head to Merseyside desperate for a point but with Liverpool’s attacking talent all capable of changing games in an instant, it’s hard to see how Dean Smith’s side can keep the Reds out for 90 minutes.

Our prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Aston Villa
