Liverpool will face off against Aston Villa at Villa Park on Tuesday night as they look to earn maximum points on the road. The Reds were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Tottenham Hotspur last Saturday, so they will be desperate to return to winning ways in midweek.
Jurgen Klopp will stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make a few changes to his first team with one eye on the FA Cup final versus Chelsea next weekend.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Aston Villa
Alisson Becker will feature in goal for the Merseyside giants after he shipped in one goal versus Spurs in his last league outing. Joel Matip could get a chance to play from the start alongside Virgil Van Dijk at the centre of the Liverpool backline. Their main focus would be to stop the Villans from scoring during the 90 minutes.
Joe Gomez could get a start as a makeshift right-back while Andrew Robertson fills in on the other side as the left-back.
Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ibrahima Konate could be rested on the bench as they offer cover for the defensive positions.
Klopp could opt for a midfield comprised of James Milner, Fabinho and Naby Keita as he looks to rest some of his first-team stars in midweek. Both Milner and Keita will have to move the ball well if Liverpool are to secure maximum points this Tuesday night.
Both Thiago Alcantara and Jordan Henderson can expect a place on the bench but might come on in the second half if needed.
Luis Diaz has been in red hot form for Liverpool in recent matches, so he will probably keep his place on the left wing. Mohamed Salah could be a nailed-on starter as the right-sided wide player.
Diogo Jota might get a chance to lead the line for the Reds down the middle which means that Sadio Mane will have to settle for a spot on the bench.
Roberto Firmino is a major doubt for this game as he is still recovering from an ankle injury.
