Aston Villa 0-1 Liverpool LIVE: Mohamed Salah scores early opener as Reds make fast start and look to continue strong Boxing Day record

    Aston Villa host Liverpool as the Premier League returns on Boxing Day, with all the action exclusively live on talkSPORT. 

    New Villa boss Unai Emery will be aiming to continue his 100 per cent record in charge after making a good start to life back in the top-flight.

    Emery will make club history if his side come out on top, with no other manager winning their first three games in the league. 

    But the Reds will be out to make sure this doesn’t happen and boast a great Boxing Day record, winning their last five with an aggregate score of 15-0. 

    Jurgen Klopp’s side have endured a poor start to the season and will be hoping they can turn things around after the restart to reduce the 15-point deficit to leaders Arsenal. 

    • Premier League clash at Villa Park will kick off at 5:30pm.
    • Aston Villa XI: Olsen, Young, Mings, Konsa, Digne, McGinn, Kamara, Luiz, Bailey, Buendia, Watkins
    • Liverpool XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago, Salah, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Nunez
    • talkSPORT will have live commentary from Adam Bridge and former England defender Stuart Pearce.
