Liverpool vs Aston Villa Predictions


Three straight wins had boosted Liverpool's confidence, but the Champions League defeat to Real Madrid in midweek was a blow. Under 2.5 goals has been a regular for both sides of late and a low-scoring game is predicted as the only selection in a trappy fixture.

  • Liverpool have seen under 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches (Premier League).
  • Liverpool have seen under 2.5 goals in 8 of their last 9 home matches (Premier League).
  • Aston Villa have seen under 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches (Premier League).
  • Aston Villa have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 5 away matches (Premier League).

Head-to-Head


Liverpool have 97 wins in this fixture compared to 59 wins for Aston Villa. There have also been 40 draws played out between the clubs.

Aston Villa embarrassed Liverpool 7-2 in the Premier League earlier in the season in a huge shock. Liverpool then won 4-1 against Aston Villa's Under-23 side in the FA Cup third round.

Liverpool Form


Liverpool return to Anfield after the disappointment of a 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid on Tuesday in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final.

The Reds were below par in Madrid and face a mountain to climb in their are to qualify.

Attentions turn back to finishing in the top four in the Premier League, something they boosted last weekend when defeating Arsenal 3-0 away from home.

Diogo Jota got two at the Emirates Stadium and Mo Salah scored the other for the Reds, who are three points adrift of the top four.

Liverpool Team News


Liverpool have no fresh injuries to contend with and they should have forward Divock Origi back available.

Defenders Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip and captain Jordan Henderson remain sidelined along with reserve goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher.

Aston Villa Form


Aston Villa ended a four-game run without a win when defeating Fulham 3-1 last weekend.

Villa fell behind to an Alexsandar Mitrovic goal, but scored three times in the last 12 minutes through Trezeguet (two) and Ollie Watkins.

Prior to the international break, Villa went down 2-0 to Tottenham.

Dean Smith's side also lost to bottom side Sheffield United 1-0 and drew with Wolves 0-0 and Newcastle 1-1.

Aston Villa Team News


Jack Grealish's return from injury was put on hold last week, and it is touch-and-go whether he will feature at Anfield.

Defender Kortney Hause may not be risked yet, while Wesley continues on his comeback from injury but isn't ready yet.

Verdict

Villa shocked Liverpool earlier in the year, and the FA Cup defeat can be written off with Villa having to field a youth team. 

Liverpool are too short given their struggles at home in the Premier League. Take the value for under 2.5 goals in what should be a tight game.
