Liverpool sits on the 6th spot in Premier League, after the hard victory over Stoke City with 1-0. The team had over two dozen opportunities, but managed to convert only one. At the very end of the game, a penalty was given to Stoke City, but goalkeeper Simon Mignolet managed to save it and the addition as well. The problem for the Reds seems obvious, they need someone who can score one on one opportunities. The drama over Luis Suarez seems to be over, and when the 10 match ban is over he will be able to return in game. Current performance rating of 86%, winning 6 of the last 7 games. Most recent victory on Villa Park, last season with 2-1. The odds for Liverpool to win this match are @ 1.95 and going up.

While we acknowledge the fact that Liverpool seems to be the team with more class, their first match was not convincing at all, and could have even ended a draw. Aston Villa lost their most recent match to Chelsea on Stamford Bridge, but managed to grab the 3 points on Emirates. We were quite impressed with their performance, and believe they have what it takes here to pull at least a draw.
We recommend the Aston Villa or Draw bet @ 1.85, solely on the fact that Liverpool is expected to create a lot of opportunities, but wont manage to convert many, as well as the Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.80 (3 of the last 5 matches, including the last 2 have ended Over 2.5 Goals).
