Aston Villa travel to Liverpool for an intriguing clash in the Premier League today.

Unai Emery’s side have won four games in a row with 11 goals scored and only one conceded, albeit featuring an 8-0 demolition of Hibernian in their two-legged Europa Conference League play-off tie.


Jurgen Klopp’s Reds, meanwhile, came from behind to beat Newcastle for a huge victory last weekend with Darwin Nunez the hero.

Both sides added reinforcements on transfer deadline day. Ryan Gravenberch landed to complete Liverpool’s midfield while Aston Villa sign Clement Lenglet from Barcelona.
