Villa are one of the form teams in England and carried their good form towards the end of last season into the current campaign, registering wins over Sheffield United and Fulham to start the season. 

For the fans
Liverpool have also yet to drop a point, starting the season with wins over Leeds United, Chelsea and Arsenal. Goals from Andrew Robertson, Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota spearheaded the defending champions to a 3-1 win over the Gunners on Monday evening. 
"It was good. It was a really good game, I loved pretty much each second. I didn’t like the goal we conceded but the reaction afterwards immediately, I liked a lot. Against a top team in form playing like we did tonight is something, to be honest," said Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp. 

"We don’t make statements, to be honest. In a press conference from time to time I have to do it because you ask me questions, but apart from that we just play football and want to win the games."

Late goals from Roberton and Mane secured a 2-1 win for Liverpool in the corresponding fixture last season after Trezeguet had opened the scoring for the hosts.
