Villarreal will come into the match following a 2-0 La Liga win with the defeat of Valencia in their most recent outing.
In that match, Villarreal managed 58% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. The scorer for Villarreal was Arnaut Danjuma (10', 17'). At the other end, Valencia CF got 5 shots on goal with 1 on target.
Over the course of 5 of the previous six clashes involving Villarreal, a notably low volume of goals have gone in between them and their opponents. The overall average goals scored per game during that spell comes out as a paltry 2, with the number of goals averaged by El Submarino Amarillo being 1.17. Such a pattern might not be carried forward into this game, though.

📋 Team News: Liverpool

The Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns at all coming into this match with a completely injury-free squad available to select from.
In our view, The Reds will probably make use of the 4-3-3 system in the match, utilising Alisson Becker, T. Alexander-Arnold, Ibrahima Konate, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson, Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago Alcantara, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz.

ℹ️ Team News: Villarreal

Out of a mainly available squad, there is just the lone fitness issue for the Villarreal gaffer Unai Emery to contend with. Alberto Moreno (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
We believe El Submarino Amarillo might utilise a 4-3-3 lineup, giving starts to Geronimo Rulli, Juan Foyth, Raul Albiol, Pau Torres, Pervis Estupinan, Daniel Parejo, Etienne Capoue, Francis Coquelin, Giovani Lo Celso, Paco Alcacer and Arnaut Danjuma.
