We bring you the latest form and team news from Liverpool and Villarreal:
Liverpool Form and Team News
The Merseyside Derby has come and gone, with Liverpool securing all three points in a 2-0 victory. They can now turn their attention to the visit of the Yellow Submarine, a side that have already defeated Juventus and Bayern Munich this season.
Klopp’s men have only lost once in 2022, a one nil defeat to Inter Milan at Anfield, and are in impressive form as they have gone on to win eight times and drawn twice since that loss. They breezed past Benfica 6-4 on aggregate to secure a semi-final spot, and Mohammed Salah has been their standout performer in attack with eight UCL goals this season.
Roberto Firmino is doubtful to return in time for Villarreal’s visit as he is struggling to shake off a foot injury.
Villarreal Form and Team News
Since losing two league games in succession, Villarreal have recorded three wins and two draws, including a historic victory at home to Bayern Munich. Emery’s squad have been on steroids this year, eliminating Juventus and Bayern to set up this meeting with Liverpool.
Villarreal have decent form away from home, with two wins, two draws, and one loss in their last five away fixtures. Forward Arnaut Danjuma has been a revelation this season with six goals and one assist.
For injuries and suspensions, Alberto Moreno will be unavailable to face his former team as he is currently sidelined with an injury. Francis Coquelin and Gerard Moreno are also injured and will not travel to Liverpool.
