Why is Aston Villa vs Liverpool postponed? Reason Premier League match won’t go ahead this weekend

This weekend’s Premier League match between Aston Villa and Liverpool has been postponed.

Steven Gerrard was set to reunite with his former club Liverpool once again this weekend after losing out in the reverse fixture back in December.

The Reds’ trip to Villa Park could prove to be one of their most difficult remaining matches as they look to finally close the gap on Manchester City.

However, both teams will have to wait a little longer to face off, with the tie’s postponement confirmed last month.

Villa may be grateful for a chance to recharge their batteries after enduring four defeats in a row, while Liverpool’s focus on the Premier League will be temporarily delayed.

Why has Aston Villa vs Liverpool been postponed?

The postponement was confirmed after Liverpool beat Nottingham Forest in a narrow 1-0 FA Cup quarter-final win last month.

The Reds’ victory means they will now face Manchester City in the semi-final on Saturday April 16 - the same day they were due to travel to Villa Park.

When will the match be played?

The Premier League clash has been rescheduled to be played on Tuesday May 10 at 8pm.

The tie comes in between matches against Burnley and Crystal Palace for Aston Villa, while currently sandwiched between league meetings with Tottenham and Southampton for Liverpool - however, their visit to St Mary’s Stadium could be moved if they progress to the FA Cup final.
