Liverpool v Aston Villa Preview - FA Cup Semi Final

Liverpool go into Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final against Aston Villa on the back of a 2-0 win at home to Newcastle. The clean sheet and two goals scored make this look like an ideal scoreline to take confidence into Sunday, but to take comfort from an unconvincing performance against a poor Newcastle side would be a mistake.

Suso Impresses for Spain U-20 Side v USA

Spain played their first game in the U-20 World Cup, defeating the USA by four goals to one, and Liverpool midfielder Suso played an important role in the side.
