Liverpool were a heavy guest against Aston Villa at Villa Park, in a postponed match from the 33rd round of the English Premier League in its season, which is very close to its end 2021-2022.
The meeting witnessed a surprise, the hero of which was Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp, as a number of the team’s main stars were absent from the match, including those who were on the bench, most notably the Egyptian star Mohamed Salah.
The Reds fans seemed worried after the German announced the formation of the team against Aston Villa, especially with the team needing every point but every goal to keep hope of winning the Premier League title at the expense of leaders Manchester City by 3 points.
In the following lines, we learn about the reason for the absence of Mohamed Salah and his start from the bench in the Liverpool and Aston Villa match, and the absence of the Reds in the Villa Park match.
What is the reason for Mohamed Salah’s absence from the Aston Villa match against Liverpool?
Before the Aston Villa match against Liverpool, the English newspapers talked about the Reds’ failure to renew Mohamed Salah, and of course the absence of the Egyptian pharaoh from the meeting was linked to his departure in the summer transfer market 2022.
But Jurgen Klopp quickly came out and put out the fire of rumors before it ignited, as he spoke to the Liverpool Echo and confirmed that all his team’s absences in the match came to give the players some rest with the cohesion of the matches.
“It’s the only way, we can’t push players all the time, we have the quality so we might as well use it,” Klopp said.
He added: “After the Tottenham game, it wasn’t very cool for the players, but today their way of thinking is normal, it’s worth fighting and that’s what we hope for tonight.”
“What I said to the players will stay between us, but it’s about making sure we put in enough effort and I think we’ll do that, enjoy the challenge, which is what we’ll do.”
What is the formation of Liverpool against Aston Villa?
German coach Jurgen Klopp relied on a formation for the Liverpool match against Aston Villa against Alisson in goalkeeper, Arnold, Matip, Tsimikas and Van Dyck in defense, Fabinho, Keita and Jones in the middle, Diaz, Jota and Mane in attack.
After the start of the Aston Villa match against Liverpool, about half an hour, the Brazilian Fabinho suffered a severe injury that forced him to leave the meeting, and Jurgen Klopp pushed the captain of the team, Jordan Henderson, instead.

He was also absent from Liverpool’s starting line-up against Aston Villa, the middle ground, Henderson and Thiago Alcantara, who were on the bench, and Naby Keita and Curtis Jones took their place.
