Liverpool v Aston Villa: Prediction from @OurLogie
A more than decent start for Villa this season but this I feel is a step up in class. Liverpool have a bit to go but they are a stronger side than Villa and will be too good. Both sides are missing strikers.. Sturridge is missing as is Benteke but Liverpool do have an in from Sterling. I just think that Liverpool will have too much in this one and I fancy a few goals from them.
THE OUTSIDER: Alberto Moreno, Liverpool – £5.5m (Home v Aston Villa)
Okay, so the Spaniard won’t score that goal he managed against Tottenham every weekend, but the strike will have boosted his confidence and helped him nail down a starting place in the Liverpool team.
Moreno managed a 13 point haul in that Spurs win, and although trusting in Liverpool’s defenders has left plenty of us red-faced in the past, their fixtures do look somewhat kind in the coming weeks and so clean sheets could join their many goals more often.
