Watch out Villa: £48m-rated LFC ace hints at strong partnership in his Instagram story – opinion

Liverpool are preparing to continue their Premier League winning streak as they look for three points on the road against Aston Villa on Sunday.

The reigning champions of England will hope that they won’t be snubbed against a side who have come flying out the blocks this season. After just scraping their survival by one point last campaign, Villa have quickly established themselves this time round and going into the weekend sat nicely above the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City in an impressive fourth place.

In order to ensure they come away with the win, the Reds will need a creative masterclass to be the first team this season to score past the Villa defence.

After Liverpool’s latest session at Melwood, Naby Keita uploaded two photos of him and fellow midfielder Gini Wijnaldum in action to his Instagram story. The duo could be relied on to start against Villa in the absence of new signing Thiago Alcantara and captain Jordan Henderson.

The Guinean hasn’t had the strongest start to his Anfield career since joining in 2018. He has suffered with multiple injuries which left him out of action for a total of 28 games across his two seasons with the Reds (via Transfermarkt). However, the back-end of last campaign saw the abilities of the £48million signing fans had been waiting for.

He contributed to three goals in three winning performances towards the end of the season and has featured in all of Liverpool’s games this term so far.

With three senior midfielders ruled out of action, Keita and Wijnaldum could be ready to link up and provide a strong performance in the middle of the park against Villa. Indeed, the Dutchman showed good form himself in midweek as he completed 100% of his passes including one key pass and two accurate long balls in a 14 minute cameo against Arsenal (SofaScore).
