Tip Reasoning

  • Liverpool have won each of their last six games but have conceded in two of their last three wins.
  • Aston Villa have scored in all four of their matches since Steven Gerrard was appointed as manager. 
  • Liverpool have scored four goals in each of their last two Premier League games at Anfield.
  • Thiago has scored in his last two appearances at Anfield.

Gerrard heads back to Liverpool with Villa

Steven Gerrard heads to Liverpool as Aston Villa boss in the Premier League on Saturday but it is unlikely to be a happy return for the Anfield legend.

Liverpool have won 14 of their last 16 games against visiting teams with former players as managers, with one draw and one defeat, but there isn’t a great deal of value in backing the hosts to simply win.

Villa can make a game of it

The Villans have three wins in four games since former Rangers boss Gerrard replaced Dean Smith, with one defeat coming in a 2-1 loss at home to Manchester City.

The fact Villa have scored in all of their games since Gerrard took charge suggests they can find a way through against Liverpool and a home win with both teams to score appeals.

The Reds kept four clean sheets in five games in November but they have had a few lapses lately. Liverpool have conceded in two of their last three games, and with Villa still enjoying the effects of a new manager bounce they may well be able to find a way through.

Anfield a fortress for Klopp’s men

Liverpool have won each of their last four games at Anfield and Jurgen Klopp’s men remain unbeaten at home this season after 10 games in all competitions (W7, D3). They have conceded four goals in total across their last four Premier League games at their home ground, but Villa have lost five of their seven trips and are unlikely to get any kind of result on Saturday. Liverpool have scored four goals in their last two home games in the league and can continue that fine form in front of goal with a 4-1 win the correct score selection.

The Reds haven’t really been sharing the scoring around and it tends to be the usual suspects who grab their goals, but at a big price midfielder Thiago does have some appeal here. The Spaniard has only scored once in the league but he has found the back of the net in each of his last two games at Anfield, against Southampton and Porto in the Champions League, and as such looks a reasonable option for a goal at any point this weekend.

Liverpool predicted lineup: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago, Salah, Jota, Mane

Aston Villa predicted lineup: Martinez, Cash, Konsa, Mings, Young, McGinn, Nakamba, Luiz, Ramsey, Buendia, Watkins


  • Four of the last six Premier League meetings between these sides have seen both teams find the net
  • No other side has scored in more of their Premier League games this season than Liverpool’s total of 15
