Why Curtis Jones missed Liverpool’s meeting with Aston Villa

Why Curtis Jones missed Liverpool’s meeting with Aston Villa

Liverpool vs Aston Villa

The second of three Premier League fixtures on Saturday is set to play out shortly.

Liverpool will welcome Aston Villa to Anfield, aiming to bounce back from a 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid earlier in the week.

The Reds are set to kick off this afternoon sitting down in 7th place in the English top-flight.

However, after picking up wins over both Wolves and Arsenal, the top-four is still well within reach of Jurgen Klopp’s side.

They currently sit on 49 points, but a win over Villa would see Liverpool climb clear of West Ham in 4th due to their superior goal difference.

Why Curtis Jones missed out vs Villa

Liverpool, as is customary, released their starting line-up an hour before kick-off.

The Reds’ team proved fairly standard, though Klopp did opt to bench Sadio Mane.

Curtis Jones, on the other hand, was completely omitted from the matchday squad, despite having stood as a key figure for Liverpool this term.

However, the Merseyside outfit quickly provided an explanation for the midfielder’s absence, confirming that he misses out as a precaution due to a muscle issue:
