Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson start on the bench for Liverpool tonight as Jurgen Klopp’s side travel to Aston Villa.

Only a win by four clear goals would take Liverpool back above Manchester City but Klopp has opted to rest the Premier League’s top scorer in Salah before Saturday’s FA Cup final with Chelsea.

Robertson, meanwhile, drops out for Kostas Tsimikas.

Elsewhere, Roberto Firmino returns to the bench after his recent injury problems.

Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane form the attacking line, while Naby Keita and Curtis Jones sit alongside Fabinho in central midfield.

Joel Matip is chosen ahead of Ibrahima Konate as Klopp looks to balance across a number of different competitions.

Anything other than a win at Villa Park would surely put an end to any title hopes, although he cannot risk fatigue ahead of the FA Cup and Champions League final.

Starting Liverpool XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Matip, Tsimikas; Fabinho, Jones, Keita; Mane, Jota, Diaz.
