After back to back games at Anfield, the Reds are back on the road for their fourth top-flight fixture of 2020/21.
Jurgen Klopp‘s men have three successive wins to their name while Dean Smith’s side are two from two having started their campaign a week later – ensuring it is another battle of two undefeated teams.
Villa’s opening matches has seen them topple Sheffield United and Fulham by an aggregate scoreline of 4-0, ensuring they welcome the champions with a timely boost in confidence.
Recent meetings between the two clubs at Villa Park has thrown up two starkly contrasting contests, with a young Reds side falling to a 5-0 League Cup defeat after the first team dramatically came from behind in the dying stages to clinch a memorable victory.
The Reds will be without the match-winner on that occasion, Sadio Mane, this evening after testing positive for COVID-19 but Klopp will have a strong XI at his disposal nevertheless.
Will Liverpool make it four from four tonight and join Everton at the top of the table with a full complement of points?
