Liverpool makes the trip to Villa Park to try and continue the unbeaten run that would allow them to climb back up to the top six. Aston Villa is currently on the 13th place with 22 points, 10 points behind Liverpool. In recent history, the matches between the two teams have been a rather close call, which allowed Aston Villa to claim a 1-0 win in September at Anfield Road.
The mood in the Aston Villa camp is not one that would suggest good things, especially after their latest stunt that involved losing against Leicester. The supporters have turned their back on the coach, and demand players whose performance is severely lacking to be dropped against Liverpool. The hosts also signed Carles Gil from Valencia, which is a transfer they needed if they are to hope for any goals against the Reds. Cissoko and Okore make up the bulk of Villa’s defensive line, but either way, the match is tipped to be decided on the wings, where the hosts are lacking space.
If Villa is to stop Liverpool from going back up while also escaping the relegation zone, they will do so through set pieces, where Bacuna and Carles Gil will excel. Liverpool is now on their seventh match without a loss, ever since the defeat against Manchester United. Markovic scored the only goal for the Reds in the win against Sunderland, and with Sterling back in the fold, expect Liverpool to find it easier to create chances, as they still have Gerrard to convert penalties, even if the captain is under doubt with a hamstring injury.
Ciaran Clark will miss out due to suspension, while Fabian Delph will return from one, and this is not the only problem Villa have as Ron Vlaar and Libor Kozak were ruled out of Saturday’s match. For Liverpool, Glen Johnson, Adam Lallana, and Bradley Jones will miss through different degrees of injuries. Aston Villa managed to snatch three consecutive draws at home, and another one has 3.40 odds. A Liverpool win has 1.83 odds and Aston Villa to win 4.50.
Another important statistic to help you with your bet is that Aston Villa’s last five matches have seen at least one goal, which is why under 2.5 goals with 1.73 odds from Titan Bet looks interesting enough.
