On Boxing Day, Aston Villa will play host to Liverpool in an effort to break their losing skid against the Reds, which now stands at four games. 

 

Since their unbelievable 7-2 win over Liverpool in the Premier League in 2020-21, the Villains have not been able to beat the Reds.


The Reds have defeated Aston Villa in five of their past six matches across all competitions, and Jurgen Klopp will be hoping for a sixth victory in seven when the two teams meet on Boxing Day. 

 

As they now sit in sixth place in the rankings, Liverpool are riding a two-game winning streak in the league.


As a result of new head coach Unai Emery's efforts, Aston Villa have won their last two matches in the league. 

 

The villains are now in third place. Aston Villa are now in 12th place in the league going into Boxing Day, and they are just four points away from the top six.

 


Aston Villa is now chasing Liverpool in the standings in order to qualify for the Europa League next season.

 

Even with a victory at Villa Park, the Reds will not be able to go much higher than sixth place.

 

 Despite this, Liverpool has a chance to close the four-point deficit that separates them from fifth-place Manchester United.


This year, Aston Villa has earned 13 of its 18 points at Villa Park thanks to their strong performance in front of their home crowd. 

 

During the current season, the Villains' home record is 11 goals scored and 6 goals allowed.


Liverpool has only managed to pick up five points from their six games away from Anfield because of their poor performance. 

 

Even so, the Reds beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in London in their most recent league game that wasn't played at Anfield.


It's possible that the victory pushed Klopp's squad in the right direction for the second half of the season.


Klopp is still dealing with some injury concerns, and he won't be able to rely on Luis Diaz. The knee injury that the Colombian suffered is currently being treated.


Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita will be ready to play for Klopp in the middle of the field. 

 

Both teams competed in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup on Thursday, with Liverpool falling to Manchester City by a score of 3-2.


In the Carabao Cup, Oxlade-Chamberlain played well and contributed to the team's success. However, it seems probable that Aston Villa would start the match with him on the bench.


Because of his hamstring injury, Diogo Jota is still unable to participate in the game. Curtis Jones, who suffered a calf injury during training, will be joining him on the sidelines.

The most current injury concerns concern Roberto Firmino and James Milner, and it seems as if both will be out for the trip to Birmingham.


In the meantime, Trent Alexander-Arnold is questionable after contracting a virus that causes the flu. 

 

Virgil van Dijk may be considered for selection to the squad after competing in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.


Philippe Coutinho and Diego Carlos are both expected to be out for Emery's match.
