Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard

Title-chasing Liverpool visit Aston Villa with Jurgen Klopp’s side still hoping a quadruple can be achieved.

Steven Gerrard’s side, meanwhile, produced a strong performance against Burnley and are well-placed to finish in the top half of the Premier League. The Villa boss worked under Klopp as both a player and coach at Liverpool.

Team News

Steven Gerrard is not believed to have any fresh injury concerns from the win over Burnley. Midfielder Jacob Ramsey did not feature in that encounter and is again a doubt, while Leon Bailey’s ankle issue might have ended the Jamaican’s season. Kortney Hause has not featured since January.

For Liverpool, Roberto Firmino was back in training last week and could return to the matchday squad. With the final of the FA Cup on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp may consider again rotating to manage his squad, including at full-back.
