Aston Villa vs Liverpool Preview

  • Date – Monday, May 13, 2024
  • Kick-off Time – 08:00 pm GMT
  • Venue – Villa Park

Liverpool FC will be facing in-form Aston Villa in the Premier League on Monday night at Villa Park. The Reds have already qualified for the Champions League and have nothing to play for this season.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are unbeaten against Aston Villa in their last seven meetings. Liverpool currently boasts the third-best attack in the league and they have been assured at the back of having the second-best defence on record. The Reds eased past Tottenham last weekend with a 4-2 scoreline and would be expecting similar results at Villa Park.

They will then take on Aston Villa, who recently crashed out of the Conference League. They will be meeting Liverpool for the second time this season and could secure their Champions League spot if they can achieve favourable results at home. But unfortunately, Aston Villa hasn’t beaten Liverpool at Craven Cottage since 2020. Unai Emery’s men are coming into this game with three consecutive defeats and the home fans would demand a strong comeback from the squad.

The Reds are certainly the heavy favorites coming into this fixture after securing an emphatic 4-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur last weekend. They had been part of a long three-way Premier League battle with Arsenal and Manchester City. Liverpool boasts one of the best attacks this season, having scored 81 goals in the league this season.

Meanwhile, Unai Emery’s side are poised to finish in the European spots this season and book their place in next season’s Champions League with a victory at home. The home side enters this game with a 1-0 loss to Brighton. The reverse fixture between both sides ended 3-0 in favour of Jurgen Klopp’s side.
