Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool have shown a “never say die” spirit on countless occasions. But even by their own lofty standards, their performance against Newcastle was remarkable. A goal and a man down with just 10 minutes to play away at St James’ Park, but by the final whistle all three points were returning home to Merseyside courtesy of a Darwin Núñez brace. Although, the instantly memorable win wasn’t without its downsides. The loss of captain Virgil Van Dijk to suspension will be a blow, and his ban could be extended further after the FA charged him with improper conduct for his reaction to being shown a much-deserved red card. 

Aston Villa will similarly come into this match bouncing after an impressive 1-3 win over Burnley. During the game new signing Moussa Diaby scored his second goal of the season and with a victory, the Birmignham-based side moved up to 7th in the table. Aston Villa have reacted very well to their opening day defeat with back-to-back league wins, and by thrashing Scottish side Hibernian in the Europa Conference League play-offs. The last time Emery’s Villa visited Anfield they held the Reds to a draw, and this time they could go a step further. 

Here's how they line up: 

Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Gomez, Robertson, Szoboszlai, Mac Allister, Jones, Salah, Nunez, Diaz.

Aston Villa: Martinez, Konsa, Diego Carlos, Torres, Cash, Kamara, Douglas Luiz, Digne, Diaby, McGinn, Watkins.

Can Liverpool keep their unbeaten start to the season going, or will Aston Villa build upon their own strong start to the season? You’ll need to watch the Liverpool vs Aston Villa live stream to find out.
