Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Aston Villa at Anfield.

Liverpool will be looking for their first win as Premier League champions on Sunday when they welcome Aston Villa to Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp's side wrapped up the title in record time last month but, following a week of celebration after ending a 30-year wait for number 19, they were brought crashing back down to earth by Manchester City on Thursday night.

The Reds fell to their heaviest defeat of the season and second-heaviest of Klopp's entire reign as the former champions made a statement with a 4-0 win, although Liverpool remain 20 points clear of City at the top of the table.

The runaway leaders will be expected to return to winning ways against Villa as they look to maintain their perfect home record this season, and here Sports Mole rounds up all of their latest injury and suspension news ahead of the match.

Dejan Lovren

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Knock
Possible return date: July 5 (vs. Aston Villa)

Dejan Lovren missed the Man City game with a "minor knock", but his omission was only precautionary and, despite the quick turnaround between matches, he could be back in contention for this one.

Joel Matip

Status: Out
Type of injury: Toe
Possible return date: Unknown

The toe injury Joel Matip picked up in the Merseyside derby proved to be more serious than first feared, and he will miss the remainder of the campaign as a result.

Xherdan Shaqiri

Status: Out
Type of injury: Calf
Possible return date: Unknown

Xherdan Shaqiri is finally closing in on a return to action after an injury-plagued campaign, but this match will come too soon for him despite Klopp revealing that he is "in a good way".


Liverpool have no players suspended for this match.
