Liverpool host Aston Villa in an intriguing Premier League game at Anfield this afternoon.

Jurgen Klopp’s men will be looking to build on their stunning comeback victory against Newcastle at St. James’ Park last Sunday, with Darwin Nunez’s brace ensuring the 10-man Reds came away from the North East with all three points.

The win has only served to boost the expectations amongst the Anfield faithful, who will be hoping the side can compete with Manchester City in this season’s title race.
