Confirmed Liverpool lineup vs. Aston Villa: 5 changes as Jones starts – Liverpool FC


Jurgen Klopp has made five more changes to his Liverpool squad for tonight’s clash with Aston Villa, with a strong line-up tasked with securing victory for Birmingham.

After a damaging 1-1 draw with Tottenham on Saturday night, the Reds have everything to do and more as they look to finish the Premier League with three straight wins.

Villa are tonight’s opponents and host Liverpool after two wins, with Steven Gerrard guiding his side to a successful conclusion.

Just three days after the last game and with the FA Cup final still to come, Klopp rotated his squad for the trip to Villa Park.

Alisson starts behind a back four of Trent Alexandre-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk and Kostas Tsimikas.

Fabinho remains in role #6, with Curtis Jones and Naby Keita join the most advanced midfield positions.

To finish, Luis Diaz, Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota make up the first three.

Notably, Mohamed Salah is named on the bench, as is Roberto Firmino back after a six-game absence with a foot injury.

AstonVilla: Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Worthy; McGinn, Nakamba, Douglas Luiz; Coutinho, Ings, Watkins

Replacements: Olsen, Chambers, Chrisene, Young, Iroegbunam, Sanson, Chukwuemeka, Buendia, Traore
