Liverpool have only won one of their six away matches in the Premier League this season, although they are warm favourites to claim three points at Villa Park. Jurgen Klopp’s side have experienced a few bumps in the road this season and they are actually seven points away from the top four places in the table right now.

Scoring goals has been a strangely difficult problem for Liverpool and seven have been notched in those half dozen clashes. However, a 2-1 win at Tottenham served to highlight that perhaps the Reds can now kick on and a repeat of that performance might be enough to beat Aston Villa.

Unai Emery is likely to want to change his squad in January, although former Liverpool striker Danny Ings will hope to cause a few problems and perhaps we’ll see improvement from Philippe Coutinho who also used to operate for the Reds. Trent Alexander-Arnold should also be fighting fit after being used sparingly.

We think that Villa on the Asian Handicap should be a decent bet and you could even side with the Midlands side with a +1 goal start. It could be that we see some unusual results in what is effectively like starting the season all over again, with a passionate home crowd hoping for a festive victory.
