Unai Emery and Jurgen Klopp have named their lineups for tonight’s Premier League clash between Aston Villa and Liverpool at Villa Park.

The Villans take on their last home game of the 2023/24 season with the chance to sensationally secure Champions League football for next campaign.

A win under the lights will be enough to move out of Tottenham Hotspur’s reach but a draw won’t quite be sufficient as another point would then be needed away at Crystal Palace on the final day.

Liverpool head into this clash with nothing to play for in the standings as they’re guaranteed to finish third but there are bragging rights for outgoing manager Klopp. Tonight is the German’s last-ever Premier League away fixture, so he’ll want to go out on a high.

The big news for Villa on the team news front is Youri Tielemans is back in the starting XI, though Matty Cash and Morgan Rogers miss out altogether. Nicolo Zaniolo returns to the bench. Here are the teams in full.
