Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to keep Liverpool’s unbeaten start to the season going when they welcome Aston Villa to Anfield this weekend after defying the odds and coming back to beat Newcastle last Sunday. The Reds found themselves a goal and a man down inside the opening 28 minutes at St. James’ Park after former Everton man Anthony Gordon had put Eddie Howe’s side ahead just three minutes before Virgil van Dijk saw his marching orders.

Aston Villa, meanwhile, made it back-to-back wins with a 3-1 victory away to Burnley to become the first side in Premier League history to lose their opening game by 4+ goals and then win their next two matches.  They have now picked up 49 points in 2023, with Man City (62) being the only Premier League side to pick up more in that time, showing just what an incredible job Unai Emery is doing in the Midlands.
