Welcome to our preview of the Liverpool v Aston Villa in the Premier League. Liverpool are mounting a sustained challenge for a top six finish this season, and will be looking for three more points here in the eminently winnable looking fixture. Villa look to have no hope of seriously challenging for a European place this term, and the best they can really hope to achieve is a safe mid-table finish and to consolidate their Premier League status.

Team and Selection News

Daniel Sturridge made his comeback from injury in Liverpool’s bizarre 5-3 win over Stoke City, and could feature from the start in this one. Daniel Agger may also return to the centre of defence, having been omitted due to a niggle at the Britannia Stadium. Villa are without a few fringe players for this match, but could welcome back Vlaar, who has been an injury absentee for some time.
