Confirmed Liverpool lineup vs. Aston Villa: 1 change as Robertson drops out

Jurgen Klopp has made one change to his Liverpool starting lineup for the final away game of his reign, which brings an 8pm kickoff at Aston Villa.

After a return to form against Tottenham last time out, Klopp’s side will be looking to keep it up against another side battling for fourth spot.

Liverpool are now officially out of the title race but know they cannot finish lower than third, with their motivation for a positive end to the season now focused around the manager’s send-off.
