Liverpool vs Aston Villa betting tips: Preview, predictions & odds

It was hardly a midweek jaunt to Spain that Liverpool would have been hoping for when they crashed and burned to the tune of a 3-1 loss at the hands of Real Madrid. Now with midweek potentially on their minds, the Reds host an Aston Villa outfit that is still without Jack Grealish but remains in the hunt for the European places.

Betting prediction: Liverpool 1-2 Aston Villa

Circumstances in Europe could give Aston Villa an avenue to haul some of – if not all – the points when they travel to Liverpool on Saturday. After falling 3-1 to Real Madrid in their midweek Champions League clash, Jürgen Klopp may have an eye on the second-leg at Anfield and could heavily rotate his matchday XI in preparation for it. If so, Villa is in with a chance to get something here, even without Jack Grealish.

Liverpool vs Aston Villa: Recommended bets

To Score Anytime: Trezéguet

After a brace against Fulham in a substitute appearance, Trezéguet could have faith shown in him by Dean Smith by getting a run out against the current Premier League holders. Both strikes were his first and second of the campaign, but this is the perfect time for the Egyptian international to step up in the absence of Jack Grealish while trying to alleviate the goalscoring responsibilities off the shoulders of Ollie Watkins.

Winning Margin: Aston Villa +1

Doubling down on the potential of Villa grabbing the full point haul on their travels could yield good returns. The fact that Liverpool has secured just one point from a possible twenty-one (0-1-6) at home since the turn of the year hardly does Klopp’s men any favors, especially if the German tactician intends on trying to reverse the scrip in their upcoming clash with Real Madrid.

Liverpool vs Aston Villa: Match preview

When you are joint-fourth in the Premier League goal charts (51), it would be a weird conversation to have if one was to suggest that your key attacking players have not done enough this season. But in the case of Liverpool’s vaunted front-three that have been so dynamic for Jürgen Klopp in the last few years, that very much is indeed the case.

Mohamed Salah (18) is in a race with Harry Kane (19) for the golden boot, and in that sense, the Egyptian has held up his end of the scoring load. But the same cannot be said for Roberto Firmino or, more importantly, Sadio Mané. The Senegalese international’s goal return in the Premier League this term has plummeted by comparison. For the first time since his arrival on English shores at Southampton, Mané is currently running the risk of ending the current season with just a single-digit goal return. His current total is certainly a far cry from the 22 he bagged in 2018-19, and 19 in 2019-20. Such was the terror that Liverpool could incite on their opposition by having such high-scoring wide players that now, without it, they struggle to really keep opponents on the back foot sufficiently enough.

The quick adjustment made by Diogo Jota after his move from Wolves has been impressive, but not enough. The Portuguese international now has more league strikes (8) than both Mané (7) and Firmino (6) in half the appearances. Though his contributions have been exceptional in such a short space of time, Mané was once lauded as arguably the best left-sided forward in the country and it is clear he is sorely missed. If the former Saints and Red Bull Salzburg winger can go through a late-season renaissance, then anything is possible for Klopp’s men both in Europe and their push to finish in the top four.

No Jack Grealish still for Aston Villa; can they still find results?

Dean Smith will be lamenting his luck a little longer while he sits in his office at Bodymoor Heath with the news that influential creator-in-chief Jack Wilshere will be unavailable for another two weeks after suffering a setback during his recovery from injury. It could not have come at a worse time either, with Villa not only having to tackle an albeit wounded Liverpool at Anfield at the weekend but also a meeting with Manchester City the following weekend. As the Villains are on the hunt for an outside shot at the Europa League places, the question will always remain whether or not they will be able to do enough on the pitch without the England international before his return to active duty.

At current, the Villa youth product sits fourth in the Premier League assist chart (10), and just one behind Kevin De Bruyne and Bruno Fernandes. When his six goals are added into the mix, Grealish’s total goal contributions are the most in the Aston Villa team and only Olli Watkins (11 goals, 3 assists) comes close to him while logging nearly 700-minutes more than the mercurial creator.

With just two wins in their last six Premier League outings, the Villa fairytale run to Europe is severely under threat, though not a single fan in Birmingham would argue with this season considering the escape act the club needed to undertake to avoid relegation last season. They may not finish in the European places, but clear signs of progression under Dean Smith and an ownership structure willing to invest in the team have paid dividends. But Grealish’s absence and the adverse effects it has caused should also stand as a lesson learned when it comes to how Villa needs to negotiate the market in the coming summer.

Both John McGinn and Bertrand Traoré have four assists to their name, but they can hardly be considered genuinely creative or capable of picking the side up regularly. The question of whether Grealish will move on in the summer is another topic entirely, but as long as he remains at Villa Park, the club have to do what it takes to bring in another player of a similar level to alleviate the reliance on him.

Liverpool team news vs Aston Villa

Jürgen Klopp continues to be without key figures Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez, and Jordan Henderson when Liverpool welcomes Aston Villa to Anfield.

Caoimhin Kelleher remains a doubt as well, but that has no bearing on the expected matchday XI.

Look out for changes to the team, however, with Klopp all but assured to have an eye on the second-leg fixture against Real Madrid in midweek.

Aston Villa team news vs Liverpool

Dean Smith will be made to wait on the availability of Jack Grealish, with the England international suffering a setback during his recovery period, and will miss a good portion of the rest of the season.

Wesley still remains unavailable for selection as well, and it is fair to say he will have to wait till next season to factor in once again.

Kourtney Hause is also a doubt, but he would not be expected to feature.
