Liverpool vs Aston Villa Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Sunday, 5 July 2020. Kick-off 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET at the Anfield.
The newly-crowned Reds were put to such a shame by Manchester City the last match-day. After giving them a guard of honor, the Citizens humiliated them with a 4-0 win at home. And it’s quite sure that the reigning European as well as English champions are hurt.
It goes without saying that Jurgen Klopp’s men will be thirsty for blood come this Sunday, no matter whom they are pitted against. And it just happens so that they are taking on the Lions – one of the worst teams in the whole competition this season.
On top of that, Dean Smith’s men were promoted to the top flight just this last summer. Furthermore, the Reds have been on a terrific run at home for the past two years, whereas their counterparts have been struggling on the road in 2019-20.
Likely, expect a huge win for the hurt Liverpool this Sunday at the Anfield.
Liverpool vs Aston Villa: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Smith’s men had recorded a 5-0 win in the EFL Cup, the last time these two had locked horns.
- However, it was practically the B team of the Reds, as the main team were busy with the Club World Cup then.
- 18 of the previous 24 wins had gone to Klopp’s men.
- The biggest win in the past three decades, actually belongs to the new champions – a 0-6 win on the road.
- 13 of the former 18 wins at this venue had gone to the guests.
- In the last twenty years, the guests had won just four times at this ground.
Liverpool vs Aston Villa: Prediction
The Reds lost 4-0 on the road the last match-day, against Manchester City. The embarrassing loss will surely motivate them to deliver a huge performance this Sunday. And it’s kind of necessary if they are to shut the critics up.
In the meantime, the Lions had lost 0-1 at home against the Wolves.
As things stand, Klopp’s men are easily the favorites. They have been the best team in Europe for the last two years. And they just posted the record for winning the English title with the most number of games remaining.
They even do have the potential to overtake the 100-point haul by Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. Moreover, they also do have to avenge the 5-0 loss in the EFL Cup.
Going on, they have a great h2h record against this rival over the years. And it deserves to be mentioned that Smith’s men are relegation-battlers, and they have been one of the worst teams in the league this campaign too.
Considering these factors, expect Liverpool to post a dominating win this Sunday.
