Aston Villa vs Liverpool
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 2 November 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Villa Park (Birmingham).
Liverpool managed to get through the two tough ties they had this month without much incident, though their winning run was put to an end at the Old Trafford. Still, the team enjoys a six-point cushion at the top of the table, and are still the favorites in the eyes of bookies to lift the title at the end of the season.
But it deserves mentioning that the games of this model, against the likes of Aston Villa, have the potential to determine to whom goes the glory at the finish line. Points dropped against these minnows could really make an impact, and Jurgen Klopp’s men will need to be on their guard for the whole of ninety minutes to not let that happen.

Aston Villa vs Liverpool Prediction
The runners-up of the preceding PL campaign had a cracker of a game the last day against Arsenal. The Carabao Cup fixture saw either side chipping in with five goals each. Keep note that both squads had their major players missing, and do not read too much into the scoreline. However, the fighting spirit shown by the Reds deserves appreciation.
This mentality has really been the hallmark of Klopp’s men ever since the gaffer took charge. Now, they are tasked with a great objective. To put an end to the Guardiola era in England, and in the process, deliver the three-decade dream of loyal fans.
Count on the guests to take this game seriously, despite being against a newly-promoted side, and ensure the win at any cost. Also, since the Citizens are taking on a Southampton, that just conceded a record nine goals at home the last day, Liverpool has no option but to put forth a strong fight.
The very last meeting between the Villans and six-time European champions had ended in a massive win for the latter. This should provide a pointer as to how this upcoming tie would end up.
The current form and Liverpool’s determination to go after the Premier League title should see the guests comfortably win this game.
