Welcome to our Liverpool vs Aston Villa betting tips, prediction and odds analysis ahead of their Premier League clash at Anfield on Saturday.
Liverpool enter the game three points adrift of fourth place West Ham and will be pushing for a top four finish this season. Villa who have exceeded expectations this season will be pushing for a strong finish in the top half of the standings.
Villa will have fresh memories of their 7-2 win when the teams lasted clashed in the league last October.
Head To Head Stats
The teams last met in a FA Cup third round clash at Villa Park in January with Liverpool winning 4-1.
Villa have won two out of their last three competitive clashes against Liverpool. They beat the Reds 7-2 in a League clash at Villa Park in October and also defeated them 5-0 in a EFL Cup quarterfinal clash in December 2019 albeit against a virtual youth side as the Reds first-team was involved in the Club World Cup at the time.
Liverpool defeated Villa twice in the league last season (2-1 away and 2-0 at home).
Latest Liverpool Results
Liverpool’s last competitive fixture was a Champions League Quarter final first leg clash against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu. They lost 3-1.
Liverpool have won their last two consecutive Premier League games (against Arsenal and Wolves).
The last time that Liverpool lost a Premier League clash was in a 1-0 defeat to Fulham in early March.
Latest Aston Villa Results
Villa head into the clash on the back of a 3-1 Premier League win over Fulham.
Villa have won just one out of their last five Premier League games.
Villa have lost two out of their last five Premier League games (against Tottenham and Sheffield United).
Villa have not been in good form recently. Liverpool will be more fired up and will be wanting to avenge their thrashing at the hands of Dean Smith’s side in October. I expect Liverpool to win this game 2-0.
Anytime Goal Scorers
Liverpool- Jota- Jota will be hungry to add to his goals tally and has been in impressive form since he returned from injury recently. The Portugal international may lead the line for the Reds given that Mohamed Salah will be in need of a rest after featuring heavily in recent weeks.
Villa- Ollie Watkins- Watkins is almost certain to lead the line for Villa in this game and has established himself as a quality Premier League player, having scored 11 goals in the top flight to date.
Our Odds And Tips In Detail
Liverpool will be aware that they can ill-afford to drop points at this stage of the campaign if they want to claim a top four finish this season. They will know that they are more than capable of beating Villa and will go all out for victory. I expect the Reds to win 2-0.
