📰 Team News: Liverpool
Darwin Núñez (Toe Injury), Calvin Ramsay (Knee Surgery) and Stefan Bajcetic (Tear in the abductor muscle) won’t be available for Liverpool gaffer Jürgen Klopp.
It seems likely that The Reds will probably use the 4-3-3 system for this game with Alisson Becker, T. Alexander-Arnold, Ibrahima Konate, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson, Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Curtis Jones, Mohamed Salah, Cody Gakpo and Diogo Jota.
🗞️ Team News: Aston Villa
With a completely healthy group to pick from, the Aston Villa boss Unai Emery has zero fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match.
It’s our belief that The Villans seem likely to begin the game with a 4-4-2 formation, starting the game with Emiliano Martinez, Ashley Young, Ezri Konsa, Tyrone Mings, Alex Moreno, John McGinn, Boubacar Kamara, Douglas Luiz, Jacob Ramsey, Leon Bailey and Ollie Watkins.
Our assessment is that Liverpool have it within them to stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
In contrast, Aston Villa might well find it a difficult task to find the back of the net but we can see them scoring here.
We’re therefore anticipating a controlled 3-1 margin for Liverpool when the full-time whistle blows.
