Liverpool vs Aston Villa: Match stats

Liverpool have won their last four Premier League meetings with Aston Villa, by an aggregate score of 13-3.

Aston Villa have only lost one of their last five Premier League away games against Liverpool (W2 D2), though it was in their last such visit in September 2015 (2-3).

Five of Aston Villa's last six Premier League wins against Liverpool have been at Anfield, in a run stretching back to April 1999.

Liverpool versus Aston Villa has seen more away wins than any other fixture in Premier League history (20 - 14 for Liverpool, 6 for Aston Villa).

Aston Villa have lost 13 of their last 15 away Premier League games against the side starting the day top of the table (D2), since beating Leeds 2-1 in January 2000.

This will be Liverpool's first home league match since being confirmed Premier League champions for the first time - the Reds are unbeaten in 56 home league games, winning the last 23 in a row.

Aston Villa are winless in eight Premier League games (D2 L6), the longest current winless run in the competition.

Liverpool have lost just one of their last 24 home Premier League matches against teams in the relegation zone (W17 D6), losing 3-2 at Anfield against Swansea City in January 2017.

Mohamed Salah has scored 49 Premier League home goals in just 59 appearances for Liverpool and Chelsea combined. Should Salah score in this fixture, only Alan Shearer (47 games) would have taken fewer appearances to reach 50 home goals in the Premier League.

In 16 games and 1254 minutes played in home games this season, Liverpool's Roberto Firmino has had 49 shots, 16 on target and an expected goals value of nearly seven. However, the Brazilian is yet to score a league goal at Anfield this term.
