- Sunday, October4, 2020 - 7.15pm: Aston Villa v Liverpool
Who is the Aston Villa v Liverpool favourite?It’s perhaps no surprise that Liverpool are heavy favourites for this one. They’re priced at 3/10 with Ladbrokes and all the top bookmakers are giving Aston Villa very little hope.
The home side are priced at 9/1, with the draw at 17/4 with the bookmaker.
A win to nil is at 5/4 and is the favourite outcome in this one and one that’s difficult to argue with.
Probable line-upsAston Villa (4-3-3): Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Targett; McGinn, Luiz, Hourihane; Barkley, Watkins, Grealish
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Jota
Head-to-HeadThe Reds beat Villa in both league fixtures last year, netting two in both games. They can be backed to score twice or more again at 4/11.
At Villa Park the game finished 2-1 with late goals from Andy Robertson and Sadio Mane to ensure their unbeaten record continued as they marched on throughout the rest of the season towards the title.
Liverpool have won their last five league fixtures against Villa and have won 96 times in overall, with Villa taking 58.
Of course, Aston Villa beat Liverpool 5-0 last season in the League Cup, although Klopp’s first team were half way around the world playing in the World Club Cup at the time.

Our Aston Villa v Liverpool PredictionsVery few Premier League predictions will be offering anything but a Liverpool win in this one, and it’s difficult to disagree.
Michael Owen has predicted a Liverpool win and BTTS at 7/4 with BetVictor, while a number of other pundits are predicting a win to nil.
Looking at the goalscorer markets, an away win and Mo Salah to score anytime at 7/5 with Ladbrokes looks a solid punt, while a van Dijk goal and away win may also be appealing at 9/4.
There will certainly be goals in this game. Both sides have been among them this season, with both Salah and Mane having three apiece.
A Liverpool win and over 3.5 goals would be our top pick at 12/5 in what should be a thrilling game to round off the weekend.
