Premier League 2022-23
Aston Villa is not so successful in the current championship. “The team is not fighting for survival, but they are only 5 points ahead of the relegation zone.
The club has no stability this season. The team loses almost every second match. In their previous match, Aston Villa won. Brighton (1-2).
The team also held 4 test matches. As you know, only one of them managed to win.
Liverpool looks frankly unconvincing this season. A team led by Jurgen Klopp does not even dream of a championship race.
In their previous match, Liverpool again failed. In the English League Cup match, the team lost to Manchester City (2-3).
The club has problems with implementation. In 14 matches, only 28 goals were scored, which is clearly not enough for one of the top clubs.

Liverpool are not in the best morale, while the leaders are gaining momentum. Aston Villa will have strong support from the stands, with the team inferior not only in the quality and experience of the players, but also in the budget.
Most likely, due to the great desire to regain positions in the top four and due to experience, the guests will be able to take over.
Prediction for this match: Liverpool win in the 1st half.
- Liverpool to score first – Yes.
- Liverpool win by two goals.
