The End Is Near: Reds travel to Villa Park for Klopp's final away match

13th May 2024

In Jürgen Klopp's penultimate match as Liverpool boss, the Reds will travel to Aston Villa on Monday, May 13. While they have been eliminated from the Premier League title chase, Liverpool did beat Tottenham the last time out and they will look to send Klopp out on a winning note in the final two matches.

Bidding Farewell

Liverpool have several special events planned to honour Klopp over the next few weeks, including a “Danke Jürgen” celebration on May 28th.  As for Klopp, he would rather focus on football and he has plenty of respect for .

“I saw them playing last night, obviously they have to travel back now, stuff like this. But it's the last game of the season of Aston Villa, they want to have a good last home game because they play an incredible season, they qualify pretty likely for the Champions League, which is a big one. I'm not sure when Villa was last time there. This year Conference League, next year – Unai is doing an incredible job there. But we will give it a try, definitely.”

Fast Facts

Several intriguing storylines are heading into the match. If Alisson gets the start in goal, it will be his 200th career match where he has 85 clean sheets. If Liverpool score two goals over the final two matches of the season, it would set a club record for most goals scored in a season, breaking the club record of 138 in the process.

The Villians Are Good

Aston Villa have already secured a spot in the Champions League along with Liverpool for next season. The Villians also missed the club's first European Cup Final in 42 years. They are led by standout striker Ollie Watkins who has scored 28 goals on the season. However, the results in Premier League play have been average of late with 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in their last 6 matches.

LFC Globe Verdict

The end is near for the season and for Klopp's 9-year Liverpool coaching career. Klopp has been short-listed for the Premier League Manager of the Year. The Reds need to these last two matches to give him a chance at the reward. Liverpool also won 8 out of their last 9 

Villa Park and with the pressure of a Title Chase off of their shoulders, I expect a 2-1 win.

The match is scheduled for a 20:00 BST kickoff from Villa Park and will be broadcast on Sky Sports. American audiences can watch on the USA Network beginning at 3 PM EST. Canadian viewers can stream via fuboTV.
