Meanwhile, the Reds have already returned to competitive action since the World Cup break, as their EFL Cup defence ended with a 3-2 defeat to Manchester City in the fourth round.

The Unai Emery era has began in positive fashion, and the Lions are out to record a third win from three matches under the former Arsenal and Villarreal boss after besting Manchester United and Brighton & Hove Albion last month.

With Emery still getting to grips with his new crop of players, it was no surprise to see  Aston Villa engage in a total of friendlies during the World Cup period, although they only claimed one win in that sequence – beating Chelsea 1-0 on home soil on December 11.

Elsewhere, Villa played out a 2-2 draw with Brighton either side of losses to Cardiff City and Villarreal, and the Spaniard is now aiming to make history as the first-ever Aston Villa manager to win each of his first three league matches in charge.

Very rarely does a weekend in the Premier League go by without a few complaints about VAR from managers, but Jurgen Klopp bemoaned a lack of technology as the EFL Cup champions were eliminated from the 2022-23 tournament in the fourth round.

Liverpool will spend Christmas Day in sixth place following their unstable start to proceedings, and a victory over Tottenham on November 6 represents their only Premier League away victory from their last six attempts.

Each of Aston Villa’s last four encounters with Liverpool has ended in defeat for the hosts, who still have that 7-2 victory from October 2020 to boast about, but the Reds have otherwise won a club-record 15 Premier League matches at Villa Park.

Aston Villa Team News

Emiliano Martinez recently became World Cup champion with Argentina and will not be available for Aston Villa on Monday.

Should he overcome a minor unspecified issue, Robin Olsen will therefore deputise for the hosts, who will remain without long-term absentee Diego Carlos.

Liverpool are without their own World Cup representative Ibrahima Konate, who will not return to training until December 27, but Virgil van Dijk should return in time in defence.

Alisson Becker will return in goal for EFL Cup specialist Caimhin Kelleher, while Roberto Firmino will miss the next couple of matches with a calf injury.
