English Premier League - How to watch Liverpool vs Aston Villa

May 19, 2023 By Oscar Rojas
The Reds are still in the race for a top four finish, which makes a win here absolutely imperative for them. Follow this match with our detailed guide.

A crucial match with a top-four finish and a spot in European competitions will be at stake when Liverpool and Aston Villa lock horns at Anfield this Saturday.

Liverpool get to this match in a seemingly better form, following a streak of nine games without a loss. To top it all, the Reds have claimed seven wins in a row, which has seen them leapfrog from ninth place all the way to ninth, keeping their Champions League hopes alive. Liverpool will have to wait for developments in coming days, since not even two wins could guarantee a top-four finish for them, as Manchester United have three games to play and they need them to drop points. Either way, Liverpool's run in the final months of the tournament has been impressive, and a victory in front of their own in their final game of the season could be a decent way to bid farewell to the competition.

On the other hand, Aston Villa have also enjoyed an impressive run under coach Unai Emery, although they endured a couple of tough losses recently that saw them slip behind in their efforts to finish the season among the top seven. The Villains have gathered points in eleven of their last thirteen fixtures, and two more wins could secure a spot in European tournaments for the next term. Unfortunately for Emery's men, they have grabbed only one point out of their last nine on the road, and if they want to reach the top seven, they will have to earn at least four points in their two remaining games, including their final tie against Brighton at home.

Here are some interesting facts to keep an eye on before this match kicks off.

Liverpool vs Aston Villa - Team news

Liverpool enter this game with everything to play for, with an impressive unbeaten run and with their key players ready to make an impact. The Reds are fifth after 36 games, which means that they need to win their remaining fixtures and wait for slip ups by either Manchester United or Newcastle to make the top four. Nevertheless, the Red Devils have one more game to play, which could be decisive in the race to finish fourth.

On the other hand, Aston Villa make it to this match with their sights set on seventh place while also trying to build up on their last win against Tottenham. The Villains are level on points with Spurs, but their goal difference is what's keeping them away from European tournaments. Hence, Unai Emery's men will need to find the strength to finish this season off in style and try to score as many goals as possible against a team they have beaten emphatically in recent years.

While this match will have its fair share of absences, it will also be used for one specific reason by Liverpool. The Reds have decided not to extend the contracts of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner, Roberto Firmino, and Naby Keita, who will be given a proper farewell by those at Anfield. Other than that, here are the names of the players that will be forced to sit this one out.

Liverpool - Injured: Calvin Ramsay, Stefan Bajcetic, Thiago Alcantara. Doubtful: Darwin Núñez, Roberto Firmino, Naby Keita.

Aston Villa - Injured: Jed Steer, Philippe Coutinho.
