Aston Villa vs Liverpool: preview

Aston Villa

Having overseen two top-flight victories in two since taking over from Steven Gerrard in October, Emery now has the chance to become the first ever Villa boss to win his first three league games at the helm.

However, the Villains’ recent Premier League record against Liverpool is not good, albeit with one very notable exception. In their last nine league meetings with the Reds, they have lost every game - apart from their sensational 7-2 thrashing of the then-defending champions in October 2020.

World Cup winner Emiliano Martínez remains unavailable to Emery, so Robin Olsen is expected to deputise in goal. Midfielder Jacob Ramsey is out with a hamstring injury.

Villa go into matchday 17 sitting 12th in the table.


Meanwhile, Liverpool are in pressing need of a win on their return to Premier League action, as Jürgen Klopp’s men bid to drag themselves back into top-four contention. The Merseysiders won their last two league games before the World Cup, but still lie seven points off the Champions League places - although they do have a game in hand on fourth-placed Tottenham.

Roberto Firmino and James Milner both miss out through injury, while Ibrahima Konaté is to rejoin training after Monday’s game, following his involvement in the World Cup final. Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold could return for Liverpool, however, after both sitting out Thursday’s Carabao Cup defeat to Manchester City.
