      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 !!

      I'm beginning to think it's all a bit of a mess and with the rise in Covid cases it'll only get worse. Covid means no crowds and I think that is also having an affect on results:

      Soton 2 v 5 Spurs
      Toon 0 v 3 Brighton
      WBA 3 v 3 Chelsea (who were 0-3 down)
      City 2 v 5 Leicester
      Leicester 0 v 3 WHU (seven days later)

      Not to mention Everton top and winning every game!  :D

      Who is to say that, by the Everton game, Mane and Thiago might be back but we lose Trent and Keita to Covid? It's all a bit strange and I don't think it is just coincidence.

      My view is we still have VVD Joe, Robbo, Naby,Gini, Mo, Bobby and Fab on the pitch, likelt to have Trent. Throw in Jota or Minamino.

      That to me should be more then enough to be beating Villa

      As to the odd results and high scoring games, could indicate players are a tiny bit less focussed, due to the lack of fans. Hasn't disturbed us so far. Today we have to watch Grealish making late runs and get tight on him. Watkins as well.

      1-2 but wouldn't be surprised at 1-1.

      I donr't trust Adrian. He always messes up.

      Calm the f**k down, he's not on the level of Mignolet style f**king up.

      James Pearce confirmed all is out but Trent fit. Sure I saw hendo travelled

      Really can't see how we stand a chance if we only have Trent and Hendo left from our squad.. playing fly keeper?

      So that’s:

      Alisson
      Matip
      Tsimikas
      Hendo
      Ox
      Thiago
      Mane

      All out of action. An early test of our squad depth.
