Aston Villa vs. Liverpool Preview
The English Premier League has brought back excitement to the lives of football fans across the globe. Their are some intriguing match ups in place and one of the better ones is the Aston Villa vs. Liverpool game later on today.
Aston Villa has started brightly in their 2013/2014 EPL campaign. The impressive 3-1 victory over Arsenal and the resilient fight against Chelsea despite losing is testament that they will be a force to reckon with this season. They will surely have Liverpool on their toes.
Villa will be looking to give a good showing for their home supporters and they will in no way see Liverpool as the superior team. The confidence in the young team has a lot to do with hit man Christian Benteke, who has already bagged three goals this season. The Belgian is wasting no time and if Liverpool gives him even a glimpse at goal, he will be seizing the opportunity to strike.
The Red Devils absolutely dominated Stoke at home and just narrowly came away with three points in the end. They will continue to be without the services of Luis Suarez and they are a much weaker threat without the Uruguayan.
Daniel Sturridge, the former Chelsea man, will be asked to fill the huge shoes of Suarez in front of goal. Liverpool will continue to rely heavily on the likes of Gerrard and Coutinho to play a crucial part in the game.
Prediction: Being a betting man, my money is on goals, but if I had to choose an outright result I’d go with a DRAW.
