Liverpool vs Aston Villa Predictions
The Champions will want to get back to winning ways after a heavy defeat.
Aston Villa are currently one point from safety at the time of writing.
Liverpool suffered a 4-0 defeat to Manchester City after receiving their guard of honour. Aston Villa lost 1-0 to Wolves, keeping them in the relegation zone with six to play.
Liverpool have little to play for having already secured the title. Their display against Manchester City may be an indication of a side taking their foot off the gas and could put Villa in with a shout.
Jurgen Klopp will certainly demand more from his side and you would expect a reasonable response after their last outing. For our betting tips on the match, a narrow Liverpool win is the correct score prediction and both teams to score looks a decent shout given that the home side could make some changes and Aston Villa are desperate for points.
Liverpool’s recent form hasn’t quite been on par with the rest of their excellent campaign. The Reds have only picked up two wins from their last five league games, conceding eight and scoring six.
Over the course of the season, Liverpool have the best defence record, conceding 25 in 32. Only Manchester City have outscored the Reds with 70 in 32.
One of Liverpool’s two defeats came against a side fighting relegation when they lost 3-0 to Watford back in February.
Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren and Xherdan Shaqiri are all doubts for this game.
Aston Villa Form
It’s been an unspectacular restart so far for Aston Villa. The Midlands side have picked up two crucial points against Sheffield United and Newcastle but have also extended their winless run to eight in the process.
Villa remain in the relegation zone with arguably the hardest fixtures from any of their relegation rivals yet to come. Dean Smith’s side still have to face five of the top 12, starting with Liverpool.
Their record against those sides makes for grim reading. Aston Villa have won three, drawn two and lost 13 against the current top 12. Their defence has failed to stand firm against any real test, keeping a paltry two clean sheets against any of those sides.
Fullbacks Matt Targett and Frederic Guilbert are both doubts.
