Follow live coverage as Aston Villa face Liverpool in the Premier League today.

Manchester City are reigning champions after a dominant 2020/21 season and Pep Guardiola's side are favourites to win it again boasting as they do one of the best squads in Europe.

European champions Chelsea have proven they have what it takes to dethrone City, however, having done it in last season's Champions League final and will be hoping to add a domestic title to the one won in Porto.

Liverpool were winners back in 2020 ending a 30-year wait for league glory and Jurgen Klopp is sure to have them back challenging again at the sharp end this season too while Manchester United will be looking to be back in the title picture with Cristiano Ronaldo returning to his former club in the summer.

It's not all about the action at the top though with Norwich, Watford and Brentford promoted to the top tier for 2020/21 and hoping to hold their own against the best English football has to offer and avoid the drop.

We will bring you all the action and updates from today's game in the live blog below:

Aston Villa vs Liverpool

Moving level on points with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, Liverpool edge over the line in a tense affair at Villa Park, in which they were ultimately deserving winners. Despite enjoying bright spells at the start of both halves, Aston Villa were unable to sustain such intensity, and remain adrift of the top 10, as they seek to secure a top-half finish for the first time in over a decade. Victory may not have been acheived in their typical style, but Liverpool are still in contention for the title, having given a rest to several integral players before Saturday's FA Cup final.

As four minutes of stoppage time are indicated by the officials, Keita lies stricken on the turf. He receives some medical attention in a sensitive area, and limps across to the touchline.

An ambitious attempt from Cash - with the ball bouncing up 20 yards out on the right side of the box - flashes well wide of the target, with several claret and blue shirts well placed to receive a cross into the box.
