Victory at Villa Park this evening would see Liverpool make English top-flight history.

The Reds won each of their opening four Premier League games in both the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons, and boast a 100 per cent record after three matches of 2020-21.

No team has ever won their first four league fixtures of a top-flight season in three consecutive campaigns.

In the Premier League era, the Reds have won 28 meetings compared to Villa's 12 victories, with 10 draws. 

At Villa Park in the PL, Liverpool have won 14 times - including their last six visits - and have lost just once in their last 19 top-flight trips.
