Liverpool vs Aston Villa 2014-15 Premier League Preview & Predictions

by Rory Kernaghan | Posted on Friday, September 5th, 2014 | 0

Last season’s EPL runners up Liverpool will play host to Midlands side Aston Villa this Saturday Sept. 13th. The Reds came so close to winning the league title in the 2013-14 season, but were pipped to the post by the Blue side of Manchester. The Birmingham side had a terrible 2013-14 season, but their recent showings have been well above par. An interesting league fixture between Liverpool vs Aston Villa

Liverpool’s last three games

Liverpool 2-1 Southampton

Man City 3-1 Liverpool

Tottenham 0-3 Liverpool

So the red side of the Mersey has had a hit and miss start to te 2014-15 premier league season, but impressive wins over Southampton and Tottenham make a 3-1 loss against Manchester City a little easier to swallow. The top four side will look to beat Villa with new addition Mario Balotelli likely starting up front.

Keys to victory for Liverpool is don’t get caught on the counter, and be sure to dominate the midfield

Last three games for Aston Villa

Stoke City 0-1 Aston Vila

Aston Villa 0-0 Newcastle

Aston Villa 2-0 Hull City

So an unbeaten start to the season for Villa will have fans hopeful, but they are yet to face any of the four top teams. Tomorrow’s fixture will change that, and the Birmingham Clarets will have a large task ahead of them. Their keys to victory will include keeping a solid defensive line, and not letting the midfield stars of Liverpool have the freedom to play openly.

Prediction

Liverpool will simply have too much talent for Aston Villa on the day. Coupled with the game being played at Anfield, the Reds have the advantage in all areas. Look for attacking midfield play paired with a lethal striking force, and Villa’s defense to be stretched to their limit. I’d say it’s going to be a red day, with Liverpool winning 4-1
