ANOTHER WEEKEND, another bumper set of Premier League fixtures to enjoy.
After a profitable midweek, we head to Merseyside for our last feature film match where Liverpool will face Aston Villa, threatened with relegation.
Liverpool vs Aston Villa – Sunday, 4.30 p.m.
It’s time to see if the Reds still have a hangover.
It was a messy evening at Etihad, when Pep Guardiola inflated City cleared their frustrations on one side of Liverpool well below their usual level.
The result was a 4-0 victory for the former champions, leaving Klopp’s side the small problem of a gap of twenty points at the top.
No one can pretend that Liverpool does not deserve its title and that it did not deserve to celebrate – but we expect them to react to what was in any case a heavy and unexpected defeat.
Dean Smith and Aston Villa already feared this match from their perilous position in the relegation zone.
The first season of Villa in the Premier League has been painful and Anfield is the last place they want to go when they desperately need points.
Liverpool are undefeated this season in the league, winning their 16 home games.
And after the defeat against City, the bookies wonder if they will go easy on Villa in this one.
Not a chance – haven’t you seen this interview with Klopp ?!
The Reds went from 17-17 to 4/11 – you support this Liverpool team at this price, at home, every time.
Villa may be fighting for their lives in the Premier League, but so far they haven’t managed to really shoot when it’s important.
Since returning from the league, they have only collected one point and have been winless on the road since New Years in Burnley.
We believe that Klopp will have his men for this after the unilateral score in City, even if the title is won.
In addition to the Reds to win, support them to score more than three goals at 23/20.
Sadio Mane scored in three of the last four Premier League games at Anfield.
Trust him with a very generous 21/20 for netting at any time in it.
