Predicted XI

Team News

Aston Villa boss Unai Emery must contend with considerable selection issues coming into the weekend as the Spanish headmaster has at least five members of the senior side who are unfit for service for the trip to Anfield.

Emi Buendía, Leander Dendoncker, Álex Moreno, Jacob Ramsey, and Tyrone Mings are all out of action, while first-choice keeper Emi Martínez is currently listed as a doubt with a knock.

Expect Emery to roll out the same XI, including a back three, that ousted Burnley last weekend.
