Liverpool travel to the Midlands to take on Aston Villa at Villa Park on Sunday lunchtime looking to close the gap on sixth-place Everton.

Daniel Sturridge is also among the subs as Rodgers opts for a front three of Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho and Stewart Downing. Here are the confirmed line-ups for the game
