Such are the fine margins in the title race, even a draw against a Tottenham team chasing Champions League qualification could prove terminal to Jurgen Klopp’s attempts of overtaking Manchester City at the top of the division.
Still, the German has stressed nothing is over until the end of the season and knows his side need a perfect record from here to stand a chance.
Standing in their way is a certain Steven Gerrard, whose Villa side are coming off one of their better displays under his tenure after beating relegation-battling Burnley at Turf Moor.
