However, the Villans are seemingly stumbling over the line as the campaign draws to a close. They have taken just a point from their last two Premier League fixtures and missed out on a place in the Europa Conference League final after suffering home and away defeats to Olympiakos.

Villa may well still be recovering from Thursday's 2-0 defeat in Greece when they line up against a Liverpool side who look to have bounced back from their own recent slump after putting four past Tottenham last weekend.

This will be Jurgen Klopp's penultimate match in the Reds dugout and he has a good record against Villa, having won eight and losing only one of his 10 league matches against them. That solitary loss was a memorable 7-2 defeat at an empty Villa Park in October 2020.

Aston Villa vs Liverpool Tip 1: Liverpool to win and both teams to score

The general consensus is that Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been out of form over recent months, but the Egyptian appeared to be back at his best after grabbing a goal and registering an assist against Tottenham last time out.

That strike took Salah's tally for the season to 25 goals in all competitions and he can add to that against Villa, who he has enjoyed facing down the years.

Salah has seven goals in 10 career appearances against the West Midlands giants, including scoring the opener against them in last season's corresponding fixture that ended in a 3-1 victory for Liverpool.

The 31-year-old's last two strikes - against Spurs and Atalanta - have also been opening goals and it would be no surprise to see Salah, who is fifth on the list of Liverpool's all-time top scorers, break the deadlock at Villa Park.
