Aston Villa vs. Liverpool live score, updates, highlights & lineups from Premier League

Liverpool will hope to get back to winning ways to keep their hopes of a quadruple alive when they take on Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa this evening.

A 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur last time out leaves them three points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City, with just two games to go after tonight’s encounter at Villa Park.

Klopp has got Saturday’s FA Cup final to keep in mind, but if the Reds want to keep pace with City he can’t take his foot off the gas against a tricky Villa side, who narrowly lost 1-0 to Mohamed Salah’s decisive penalty in the reverse fixture back in December.

Steven Gerrard - Aston Villa - November 14, 2021

Aston Villa vs. Liverpool predicted lineups

A pair of former Liverpool players in Philippe Coutinho and Danny Ings now playing under former Liverpool midfielder and Villa manager Steven Gerrard will be in contention to start against the Reds. Coutinho was on the bench for Saturday’s 3-1 win over Burnley, as Emiliano Buendia has grabbed hold of the playmaker role in recent weeks.

Kortney Hause is sidelined with an abdominal injury, while Leon Bailey is likely out with an ankle problem and Jacob Ramsey has a groin issue. Otherwise Aston Villa’s squad is at full strength, a rarity for this time of year.

Aston Villa projected starting lineup (4-3-1-2): Martinez (GK) — Cash, Konsa, Mings, Digne — McGinn, Chambers, Luiz — Buendia — Ings, Watkins.

For Liverpool, Roberto Firmino could be back in short order: He returned to training but missed out against Tottenham last time out. Otherwise, like Villa, the Reds are relatively healthy at this late stage. There could be some squad rotation for the Reds, especially if Jurgen Klopp decides to concede the Premier League to save players for the FA Cup final (May 14) and Champions League title match (May 28).

That could see one or both of Joe Gomez or Kostas Tsimikas get playing time along the back line. Joel Matip was rested against Tottenham in favor of Ibrahima Konate but should return, while Naby Keita and Diogo Jota are thought to be available for starts, with Thiago and Sadio Mane potentially making way.

Liverpool projected starting lineup (4-3-3): Alisson (GK) — Robertson, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas — Keita, Fabinho, Henderson — Diaz, Jota, Salah.
