Comments:

In comparison to Liverpool's young team, Aston Villa named their oldest starting XI so far in this season (28 years and 32 days).

Comments:

With the senior squad due to play in the FIFA Club World Cup in Doha less than 24 hours later, Under-23s coach Neil Critchley was placed in charge of the youthful team for this game. The average age of the starting line-up (19 years and 182 days) became the youngest-ever in Liverpool's history in any senior competition. The previous record was 21 years and 296 days for Plymouth Argyle's visit to Anfield in the FA Cup on 8 January 2017.
