Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has no fresh injury worries ahead of the visit of Aston Villa in the Premier League this afternoon.

However, Klopp indicated he will assess the condition of some members of his squad following defeat to Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final earlier this week.

Sadio Mane has been rested ahead of the second leg, but with the Reds still chasing a top-four finish, they can’t afford any more slips-ups in the League.

Striker Divock Origi has been absent for the Reds' last three matches because of a muscle problem, while captain Jordan Henderson and defensive trio Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Virgil Van Dijk remain on the treatment table.

Liverpool starting XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Kabak, Robertson, Fabinho, Milner, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Jota

Injury list: Henderson, Van Dijk, Matip, Gomez, Origi, Kelleher

Liverpool provisional squad: Alisson, Adrian, H Davies, Alexander-Arnold, Kabak, Phillips, B Davies, Robertson, Tsimikas, R Williams, N Williams, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Thiago, Milner, Jones, Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Shaqiri, Cain, Salah, Jota, Mane, Firmino.
