The end of the 2023-24 Premier League season is almost upon us. Liverpool have the most outside of outside chances of securing the title, but technically, they still have something to play for outside of pride.

On Monday, they travel to fourth placed Aston Villa for a unexpected Top 4 showdown with the Villans in early May.

Unai Emery has worked wonders at the club and he has them smelling Champions League football once again. They will not be an easy out, especially in front of their home crowd.

For his part, Jurgen Klopp will be taking one of the strongest squads that he has had in a long time as the Reds look to keep building on the momentum from their 4-2 victory over Tottenham.

Let's take a look to see which Starting XI Klopp will go with for this enticing encounter.

Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jarell Quansah, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson

Midfielders: Alexis Mac Allister, Wataru Endo, Harvey Elliott

Forwards: Mohamed Salah, Cody Gakpo, Luis Diaz

Probable Subs: Darwin Nunez, Dominik Szoboszlai, Curtis Jones, Joe Gomez, Ibrahima Konate

The pair of Elliott and Gakpo have been Liverpool's two best players in recent weeks and they should be starting the final two matches of this season.

Mac Allister looked to be a bit back to himself against Spurs and the presence of Endo should allow him to keep getting forward where we have seen he does his best work this season. Szoboszlai will upset to miss out once again, but he just has stumbled to the finish line of this campaign.

Salah was back on the scoresheet which was a sight for sore eyes as he demonstrated that he is still a handful for any Premier League defense when he is fit and firing.

Gakpo retains his spot once again following yet another strong showing while Diaz was one that I considered throwing Nunez out wide, but the Colombian has been more consistent recently.

One name that misses out is Ryan Gravenberch which is a shame as once again, he was not given the opportunity to build on a strong performance after his goal exploits against West Ham. I'm not sure what Klopp has been wanting to see to give him the full chance.

Projecting to Monday's meeting with Villa, this Starting XI should be enough to get the job done over a injury depleted side that was knocked out of Europe in the midweek.
