It is strange to say considering their poor start to the season, but in recent weeks Liverpool have been flying. With four wins in their last six games, including two draws, they are finally starting to produce the type of form that helped them finish second in the Premier League last season. This Saturday they are hosted by Aston Villa.
Aston Villa are just three points clear of the relegation zone after a 1-0 defeat at Midlands rivals Leicester last weekend. The Villans have struggled to win games in recent weeks and have picked up just one win in their last six games in all competition, although three of those games have resulted in draws. In fact the Villans have drawn their last three Premier League games. Villa are the lowest scoring team in the English top-flight with just 11 league goals netted this season.
Liverpool are in decent form heading into this clash. The Reds are currently eighth in the Premier League table, five points behind fourth place Manchester United. Brendan Rodgers side have won four and drawn two of their last six in all competitions, including winning the last two. The Merseysider’s claimed a 1-0 win at struggling Sunderland last time out and confidence looks to have returned to their team. The visitors will be confident of victory in the Midlands as Villa have not beaten the Reds in 15 encounters in all competitions.
