Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Aston Villa

Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news for Sunday's Premier League clash with Aston Villa.

Liverpool will be looking to bounce back from their EFL Cup exit when they visit Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

Jurgen Klopp's side were beaten on penalties at Anfield following a goalless draw with Arsenal on Thursday night, but remain perfect in the league having begun their title defence with three wins from three.

Only Leicester City have scored more goals than the champions, but this weekend sees them come up against another team with a 100% record and the only club yet to concede in the league this season.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
