      Pre Match: Aston Villa v Liverpool - Sun 4th Oct 7:15pm
      Oct 03, 2020 10:31:05 pm
      Aston Villa have continued their excellent form post lockdown and look a different team than the one that almost exited the league. John McGinn and Jack Grealish were sublime as Dean Smith’s side demolished Fulham so a hard-fought battle like last season’s narrow defeat against Liverpool should be on the cards.

      Jürgen Klopp’s side have started with similar venom but, agonisingly for the rest of the league, still appear to not yet be in top gear. Smith’s revolutionised defence is in for a serious test to stop Liverpool racking up a fourth win in four.

      Being a bit bold with my prediction for the game. I went for a 3   0 win for the Reds, before I new Sadio Mane was side lined after testing positive for coronavirus.  Still think we will win by a decent margin !

      Worried for this game to be honest. We’re going there with a few players missing and with Bobby out of form. We struggled at villa last season; we needed two late goals to win (which actually became a huge moment in our title winning season).

      Team picks itself for me.

      Ali
      Trent
      Gomez
      Vvd
      Robbo
      Fabinho
      Gini
      Keita
      Jota
      Bobby
      Salah


      This is a huge, huge game. A tough fixture in tough circumstances but a great opportunity to put some distance between ourselves and city and knock f**king Everton off the top.

      Come on reds.

      I’m worried too, could be a really tough game and Villa look good / confident.

      At the same time I feel like Salah needs a goal and will score plus we have VVD and Becker which always gives me so much confidence.

      Let’s do this!!

      I’m not too worried about this. They punched above their eight against us last season, as their final league position showed. Although they were 1:0 up till late, we had plenty of chances we didn’t put away. I don’t think they’ve really improved very much, and with Mings as one of your CB s, your always likely time concede against quality strikers.
      Still confident of my prediction. 3:0 to the mighty red men !

      We should show our class today, to beat an inform Villa side. The goals could come from anywhere, we do not always have to rely on our front men to score. I have also gone for 3:0 for the champions.

      I had 5-0 in from a few weeks ago but have since revised.

      Still think we'll win but a tougher game than you would first think.

      Would like Jota to come in for Mane, and go with the team in the OP.
      For me the game at Villa last season, coming back to win 2-1, was my most memorable for some reason.
      The two really late goals were unbelievable :)
      Stay focused and think we can get another 3pts today.
      Looking forward to it !!

      Yeah, covid, concussion,  shoulder all have been mentioned,  others saying Trent and fab out. Fab posted his usual match day post, so many attention seekers on Twitter it's hard to separate fact from fiction.

      Yea it's best just to wait to see what happens.

      Seems to be the latest Twitter fad to spread rumours of players out.

      Wasn't Alisson supposedly out a week or two ago and he played?

      Yep. F***ing friendly with Wales! A few teams have 3 games. Absolute madness.
