The stakes are high at Villa Park on Sunday: Time is running out both for hosts Aston Villa to secure Premier League safety, and for Liverpool to launch a final run at the European places for next season.
For Liverpool, three straight morale-boosting league victories against Swansea City, Wigan Athletic and Tottenham Hotspur were dampened by a comprehensive 1-3 loss at Southampton before the international break.
Brendan Rodgers will be well aware of the threat that Villa pose on the counterattack: Powerhouse striker Christian Benteke tore Liverpool apart almost single-handedly as Villa beat the Reds 3-1 at Anfield back in December.
So how should Liverpool approach another tricky away tie? Here is our starting XI, in a 4-2-3-1, for the Reds this Sunday. Let us know your thoughts below.
