Preparations for Liverpool's Premier League match with Aston Villa have continued this week.

Ahead of the match, Liverpool still have players sidelined with injury.

Stefan Bajcetic also returned to action after missing the most part of the season with a calf issue. He played a total of 25 minutes against Spurs.

He has been on the sidelines since December when he suffered a knee injury during an appearance for Liverpool's Under-21s. No timeframe has been given for when the club expects Doak to make his return from the injury.
