Predicted Liverpool starting line-up vs Aston Villa | Sportslens.com



Liverpool will take on Aston Villa in the Premier League clash on Saturday at Anfield. 

The Reds are heading into this game on the back of a disappointing 3-1 defeat against Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-final first leg.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have won back-to-back games in the Premier League, but they need to start winning at Anfield, where they’ve lost six games in a row.

Liverpool find themselves seventh in the league, three points behind fourth-placed West Ham. Diogo Jota stressed the importance of winning games at a stretch, and Liverpool should look to bounce back to winning ways against Villa.

The Reds defence was all over the place in Madrid, but the duo of Natt Phillips and Ozan Kabak came out with heads held high.

In midfield, Klopp is likely to drop Naby Keita who was substituted in the 42nd minute against Madrid due to tactical reasons. The 26-year-old could be dropped here, with Thiago Alcantara replacing him.

With Jack Grealish out injured, it’s high time Liverpool come out with all guns blazing and take attack as their best form of defence. Roberto Firmino, who is capable of dropping deep, should start to provide Liverpool with an attacking edge over their rivals.

Predicted Liverpool starting line-up vs Aston Villa (4-2-3-1): Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Kabak, Phillips, Robertson, Fabinho, Thiago, Mane, Salah, Jota, Firmino. 

In other news, Liverpool have been linked with a move for Stefan De Vrij.
