Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will be looking to return to winning ways in the FA Cup when they face Aston Villa at Villa Park in the small hours on Saturday.

Though currently leading the Premier League table, Liverpool’s dip in form of late has been a concern. They have been winless in their last three matches and the FA Cup fixture may turn out to be more than a handful against a Villa side that has been impressive this season under manager Dean Smith.

In fact, the last time the two teams met in the Premier League last year, Aston Villa stunned the reigning English champions 7-2. Fans in India can watch the Aston Villa vs Liverpool FA Cup match and the other round 3 fixtures live.

Liverpool’s famed attacking troika - Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Robert Firmino - will once again be the centre of attraction but Klopp may be tempted to rest one or two of his stars keeping an eye on next week’s crucial league tie against Manchester United.

The Reds, though, will be spread thin defensively with several first-choice defenders, including Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, out with injuries.

Villa, meanwhile, are comfortably placed in the league table and are expected to field a strong team, including star midfielder Jack Grealish.

Reigning FA Cup champions Arsenal face Premier League peers Newcastle United FC in the third round, while Manchester United host Championship side Watford.
