Liverpool has gotten off to a reasonable start gaining 6 points out of 9 which considering the quality of opposition is pretty good going. The minor blip against City which showed some defensive frailties was easily resolved in the changing rooms afterwards where Rodgers discussed the importance of concentration at all times. Against Tottenham, Liverpool picked up where they left off last season picking them apart bit by bit leading to numerous opportunities for Mario Balotelli to open the scoring on his debut. Liverpool usually finds Aston Villa to be tricky customers some may say Liverpool’s bogey team who seem to highlight flaws within the side.
Aston Villa has still to feel their first loss of the season, which will fill them with confidence going into the game away at Anfield. So far this season Fabian Delph has looked the bright spark in a Paul Lambert side that tend to struggle for goals and his performances have awarded him the chance he received against Norway to make his first international appearance for England. The impressive Ron Vlaar will not have to concern himself with the illusive Luis Suarez, which will take a lot of pressure off his shoulders.
For me Liverpool have too much firepower not to win Villa comfortable but as previous results have suggested you can never really put it past them.
