Aston Villa v Liverpool

Sky Sports 1 / Sky Sports 1 HD
Aston Villa collected just their third victory of the campaign last time out in the Premier League with a 2-0 win over fellow strugglers Norwich. Villa have looked doomed to life in the Championship, but the win last time out will give fans some slight hope of a great escape.
The side from the Midlands are still eight points from safety though, despite just one defeat in their last five top-flight games. Remi Garde’s side can be backed at odds of 4/1 with BetVictor to come out on top on this clash.
Liverpool have been highly-inconsistent this season and the arrival of highly-rated boss Jurgen Klopp has not helped that situation. The Reds exited the FA Cup at the fourth round stage last time out with a 2-1 extra time defeat at West Ham and drew.
In their last Premier League game Klopp’s side drew 2-2 with Sunderland, after holding a two goal lead until the 82nd minute. The Reds have been poor away from home of late and have conceded at least two goals in five of their last top-flight games on the road.
Liverpool have become a hard team to judge, as you just never know which team is going to turn up. You can back Klopp’s team for the victory in this clash at odds of 10/11 with Coral.
In this majorly unpredictable campaign the draw looks like the most logical bet, which you can back at odds of 11/4 with Totesport.
I cannot look past the draw at odds of 11/4 with Totesport for my big tip, as Villa look like they could be improving and you just never know what Liverpool team is going to show-up.
