Villarreal are on a five-game unbeaten streak across all competitions after they claimed back-to-back victories in the La Liga following their 2-0 win over Valencia at the El Madrigal Stadium thanks to a brace by Arnaut Danjuma.

The Yellow Submarines currently occupy seventh place in the league standings with 52 points from 33 games, three points behind sixth-placed Real Sociedad and five behind Real Betis in fifth place on the log.

Liverpool and Villarreal have only met twice before in European competition with the results equal between the teams, with the Spanish side winning the first game 1-0 before the Reds won the last encounter 3-0 at Anfield on April 28, 2016

Jurgen Klopp will only have Roberto Firmino doubtful for the game as he looks to overcome a foot injury, while Unai Emery is expected to be without Francis Coquelin, Alberto Moreno and Gerard Moreno due to injury.

Mohamed Salah will be looking to rediscover his form for the Reds when they take on Villarreal after he scored eight goals in his last 10 Champions League matches.

Arnaut Danjuma will lead the line for Villarreal when they travel to Anfield as he looks to add to his six-goal tally in the competition after scoring the winning goal in their 1-0 victory over Bayern Munich in the quarter-final first leg.
