The line-ups are in ahead of the Premier League fixture between Liverpool and Aston Villa at Anfield…

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers makes three changes to the side which comfortably defeated Tottenham Hotspur in their last outing.

Philippe Coutinho, Lazar Markovic and debutant Adam Lallana are the men who come into the starting eleven with Raheem Sterling and injured pair Daniel Sturridge and Joe Allen making way.

Lucas Leiva and Fabio Borini, both of whom were tipped to leave the club recently, are amongst the substitutes.

Deadline Day loan signing Tom Cleverley makes a debut for the visitors but captain Ron Vlaar is ruled out. Ex-Liverpool defender Aly Cissokho starts at left-back.

At the time of writing, 69% of Vital Liverpool users who voted in our prediction poll have gone for a Liverpool win. 25% have plumped for Villa while only 6% envisage a draw.
