In form Liverpool will be hosting Aston Villa at Anfield for their 16th game of the current Premier League season. The Reds are currently in second place on the points table, after handing a 1-0 loss to the Wolves on its home turf last Saturday. Liverpool is just one point shy of the top spot, which is currently occupied by the reigning Champions, Manchester City, with 35 points.
Aston Villa will be going into the game with its confidence high as well, having beaten Leicester City 2-1 in the last game. The team is currently at the 10th spot with 19 points and has a comfortable lead of 9 points over the bottom three teams. Aston Villa is one of the most exciting mid-field teams to watch this season and you cannot rule out an upset against any opponent.
When it comes to head-to-head stats, Liverpool has a clear edge, having won 6 out of the last 7 games that they have played against Aston Villa in the Premier League. Its only loss came in the previous season when Aston Villa stunned them 7-2 at Villa Park.
History however is unlikely to repeat itself, and most betting sites are factoring in a comfortable win for Liverpool in their odds.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Liverpool F. C. vs Aston Villa F. C. Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Anfield, Liverpool, on the 11th of December 2021.
Jurgen Klopp’s boys have shown some exceptional form in the past few games, and have kept a clean slate in their past four games at Anfield. All his regular players are well rested and will be looking to make small work of any challenge that Aston Villa might throw at them. Fabinho, Jordon Anderson as well as Thiago Alcantara will be looking to make it to the starting eleven. Klopp also has the option to start with Divock Origi, whose last-minute heroics helped them go over the line against the Wolves.
Villa will sorely miss its attackers, Leon Bailey, Trezeguet, and Bertrand Traore, and are likely to start with the same XI that started against Leicester.
With the advantage of playing at home, Liverpool is most likely to avenge their humiliating loss to Villa in the previous season.
Bet on a Liverpool victory.
We think Liverpool is an underrated defensive team. The focus always seems to be on its offensive capabilities but it has only conceded 12 goals this season. That is right up there as among the best. It has three clean sheets in its precious five matches and we think it could keep Aston Villa from getting on the score sheet in this match as well.
