Aston Villa vs Liverpool
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 4 October 2020
Kick-off at 19:15 UK/ 20:15 CET
Venue: Villa Park.
The Reds are the reigning champions of the competition, and they easily have been the best team in the country for the past two years. They even could be considered to be the best team in Europe along with Bayern Munich. Such has been the level of dominance shown by Jurgen Klopp’s men.
As of now, they are targeting a repeat of their title-winning 2019-20 campaign, and they have made a perfect start as well.
The team has raced to the top of the table with a 100% winning record till now, and considering that competitors Manchester City were beaten soundly by Leicester the last week – this is the right moment for the Reds to pull ahead.
And they have been presented the perfect opportunity for it as well. This week the team is pitted against the Lions, who had finished 17th in the table. In fact, Dean Smith’s men were under threat of relegation even into the final minutes of the last match-day of the 2019-20 season.
It goes without saying that they are a bottom-tier squad even on their best day, and are no match for the likes of the Reds.
On top of all that, the six-time European champions also have a dominating h2h record against this rival.
Considering all these stats, expect a comfortable win for Liverpool this Sunday.

Aston Villa vs Liverpool: Prediction
The Lions registered a 0-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Fulham – the worst team in the league.
In the meantime, Klopp’s men recorded a 3-1 win at home against Arsenal – one of the best teams in the competition.
The Reds have a clear upper hand this weekend. They are the best team in England at present, and they are determined to secure another PL title this year.
Their closest competitor Manchester City are going through a troubling period at the moment, and this is the opportune moment for the defending champions to build a buffer of points at the top.
Going on, they are pitted against one of the weakest teams in the contest, who had barely scraped through to this new season – with a one-point lead over the relegation cut-off.
Furthermore, Smith’s men also do have a worrying h2h record against this foe in the past several decades.
Taking into account all these factors, expect a dominating win for Liverpool this Sunday.
