Aston Villa vs Liverpool Head-to-head (h2h)

Aston Villa vs Liverpool Prediction
Aston Villa has been winless in their last four fixtures in the major competitions. Their recent visit to Sheffield United ended in a 2-0 defeat for the Villains. It has marked the third consecutive loss in their form.
Also, the host has been winning at home lately in the Premier League against weaker teams in the mix. However, the Villains have lost twice in the last five home matches when facing leading teams like Liverpool and Leicester City.
Since the home team performance at their own turf hasn’t been that good, especially when facing giants, we cannot count on them to pull a win.
Liverpool,on the other hand, is on a valiant run in the premier league and also in the champions league. Jurgen Klopp has extended his contact until 2024 which is good news for the Liverpool fans.
Their previous overall encounter against Watford gave them their third clean sheet win in a row. Also, the guest is unbeaten in the last ten matches in their schedule.
Besides that, the Reds have been undefeated in the last nine away fixtures in the major competitions. Also, they are on a five-game winning streak on the road lately.
As such, the only way Aston Villa can register a win is only if Jurgen Klopp decides to rest his senior players on lookouts for the PL and CL games ahead.
However, we can be sure that there will be over 2.5 goals in the game. Also, we can expect both teams to score in the game.
