Liverpool travel to Aston Villa for Jurgen Klopp's final away game as LFC manager.

The weekend brought a mathematical conclusion to the reds season, those 10 points dropped against United, Palace, Everton and West Ham scuppering any chance for a 20th Premier League title.

It is now down to Man City and Arsenal to battle it out in the final week.

The reds are guaranteed a third place finish, but Aston Villa - in their final home game - are not yet assured of Champions League football.  They have a four point lead over 5th placed Spurs - so they still have a lot to play for.

The reds beat Spurs last weekend in a game that at times had some testimonial vibes.  Can Liverpool produce a solid performance or are the players already thinking about their beach holidays a week today?

As it happened...

Recent LFC record at Villa Park

The reds have won the last three times they have visited Villa Park, twice in the Premier League and once in the FA Cup.

But there were two horror shows before that.

In December 2019, with most of the first team away at the Club World Championship - we lost 5-0 in the League Cup.

Fast forward a year and the newly crowned Premier League Champions, Liverpool, were humbled 7-2 in what ultimately turned out to be the beginning of the end for some players in Klopp's title winning squad.

After his post Spurs 'actions' will Nunez be in the side tonight, rumours are that he isn't in the starting XI.

Either way, we'll find out soon.
