A 3-0 defeat to Manchester City away at the Etihad was perhaps the most expected outcome last weekend. The defending champions simply proved too strong for the Villains who were looking for their third straight league win.
Instead, Dean Smith’s side will be looking to avoid back to back defeats when they host league leaders Liverpool.
The Reds have been firing on all cylinders since the Premier League returned and they’re currently the last remaining unbeaten side in the division.
Nine wins from ten, 23 goals scored and eight conceded! That is a record that Smith’s men will be hoping to unlock come Saturday.
How do the bookies feel about this? Well, as you’d expect, Liverpool have been made the 1/3 favourites; that’s despite being the away team in this contest.
Aston Villa may be well priced at 15/2 however, given Liverpool’s record this may not be a very intelligent bet.
Our recommendation is built around one particular stat – Liverpool haven’t conceded a goal at Villa Park in their last three Premier League visits. With that in mind, the recommended bet is to go for a Liverpool win to nil at a decent 7/5 offer.
