After their loss to the hosts Real Madrid CF in the First Leg of the Champions League 2020-21 Quarter-final, Liverpool Fc (The Reds) are set to play in the Premier League against the visitors Aston Villa Fc.
Date: 10 April 2021 (Saturday) ; Time: 3:00 p.m (BST) kick-off ; Venue: Anfield, Liverpool, England.
Jürgen Klopp might consider bringing Key Players like Roberto Firmino, Thiago Alcântara and veteran James Milner back in the starting line-up for the upcoming fixture.
Yet; in order to keep the Team fresh for the Second Leg of the Champions League 2020-21 Quarter-final against Real Madrid CF (next week), Klopp will look to rotate the squad.
This means that others like Xherdan Shaqiri, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keïta, Curtis Jones, Neco Williams, Rhys Williams and so on might also be considered.
However; given that the Reds are currently on an unprecedented 6-game home Premier League losing streak, so Klopp has got his work cut out to find a proper balance without tinkering the Team too much and find a way to end this harrowing home losing streak.
Regarding the Reds recent encounters with Aston Villa Fc (The Villa), the Reds suffered their worst away defeat in the Premier League against the hosts Villa who were just ruthless at that day.
Reds Team Injuries and Suspensions: Prior to the Wolverhampton Wanderers Fc away game, Divock Origi has been sidelined due to an unspecified muscle injury.
Due to an unspecified injury that seems to be a stomach muscle tear; young Goalkeeper Caoimhín Kelleher is ruled out for the foreseeable future.
After undergoing a successful corrective surgery on the adductor injury sustained during the Everton Fc home fixture; Captain Jordan Henderson has been sidelined for an unspecified period.
Since sustaining a ankle ligament damage during the Tottenham Hotspur Fc away clash, Joël Matip has been ruled out for the rest of the Season.
Both Joe Gomez and Virgil Van Dijk are currently working on regaining full fitness, after undergoing successful surgeries on their injured knees.
No timescale has been set on the return of the Matip, Gomez and especially Van Dijk as they are unlikely to play this Season.
Verdict: The Villa side under their Manager Dean Smith are a formidable side to overcome and the Reds do not need any reminder of their record away loss in Premier League to the hosts Villa.
Without the Home Supporters to cheer the Team on (due to the British Government restrictions relating to the COVID-19 Pandemic), the Reds were never the same as they are accustomed to feeding off from the energy of the Home Supporters.
Also with next week’s Second Leg of the Champions League 2020-21 Quarter-final against Real Madrid CF hanging over their heads, the Reds might find themselves in a tricky situation to beat the visitors Villa (regardless of the visitors form).
