Liverpool got knocked out of the Carabao Cup on Thursday on penalties against Arsenal. Now the Reds return to Premier League action on Sunday when they’ll face Aston Villa. This was a tough trip last season, when Liverpool fell behind 1-0 in the first half.

They did come away with a win, when late goals from Andy Robertson and Sadio Mane sealed the three points. Liverpool will be aiming for a fourth win in four tries to start the season for the third-straight Premier League campaign.

Injury News

We start with some late breaking news on Friday, and that’s winger Sadio Mane testing positive for coronavirus. He is currently in self-isolation. COVID-19 will also keep Thiago Alcantara out of this game, as this will be the third-straight match he’s missed after testing positive. The midfielder is progressing well while continuing to isolate. Captain Jordan Henderson is back at training, and could be available on Sunday. He is unlikely to start, but could provide a boost from the bench.

Liverpool also suffered an injury blow defensively, with Kostas Tsimikas missing the Carabao Cup clash.

The Greek defender has a thigh problem and won’t return before the international break. Joel Matip continues to recover from a muscular injury. He is on track to be available against Everton after the international break. That said, you can look at our LFC starting XI prediction at this link.

Burnley pulled out of a deal for Harry Wilson, but Liverpool would be open to selling the Welsh midfielder.
