Liverpool v Aston Villa: match preview 

Jürgen Klopp said October’s 7-2 defeat at Villa Park will be on his mind as Liverpool look to end a damaging sequence of six successive losses at Anfield. “We have to put things right,” he said of Liverpool’s heaviest league defeat since 1963. Victory, which would be Liverpool’s 100th in all competitions at Anfield under Klopp, would not only enhance prospects of a top-four finish but improve confidence before next week’s Champions League return against Real Madrid. Aston Villa, however, can move to within two points of the champions with an eighth away win of the campaign. Only Manchester City and Chelsea have kept more clean sheets this term than the visitors’ 14. Andy Hunter
