Aston Villa v Liverpool: match preview


Norwich boss Daniel Farke says his side will not become obsessed by league position as they look to climb the table with victory at Brighton this weekend. The Canaries have slipped to second bottom after four defeats in the last five although they did manage a 0-0 draw at Bournemouth in their last away game.

“We can’t doubt ourselves. We have to be self-critical but believe in our principles. We have to stick together,” parped Farke. “Our supporters know we face a tough time, but the players try everything. We’re not addicted to looking at the table.

We want to win games and let it take care of itself. That’s the approach we had last season and we had a brilliant finish.”

As for team news, goalkeeper Tim Krul is fit again after being injured against Manchester United but Onel Hernandez could be an absentee as his partner awaits the birth of their child. Mario Vrancic misses out through illness, while Todd Cantwell (hamstring) and Ibrahim Amadou (knee) are doubts.
