LIVERPOOL return to Anfield for the first time since securing the Premier League title.
Jurgen Klopp's side were thrashed 4-0 by Man City in midweek and will be out to bounce back after falling well below their usual high standards at the Etihad.
In their way are an Aston Villa side lacking in both confidence and form, but still scrapping to extend their top-flight stay.
Dean Smith's side have picked up two points from a possible nine since returning to action and are in desperate need of a win.
When is Liverpool vs Aston Villa?
Which TV channel and live stream can I watch it on?
What is the team news?
There are no new injury concerns for Klopp who has reiterated he will play his strongest side for the remainder of the campaign.
Matt Targett has a hamstring injury for the visitors and will definitely play no part in this one.
But in a boost for Dean Smith, both Frederic Guilbert and Danny Drinkwater are back available.
