Despite losing just once in 2022, Liverpool have scored just once in their last five games across all competitions. Their opponents meanwhile have scored thrice in their last two home games. Hence, I have backed the hosts for the first half.
The Villans have failed to score in three of their last five home fixtures. Their opponents on the other hand have conceded just 23 goals all season. Therefore, expect the Reds to register a clean sheet.

Pre match press conference
Steven Gerrard, Aston Villa manager: “We have made some alterations around the building in terms of rules and other things, but this summer will give us a chance to breathe, reflect and reset. It will also give us the luxury of a pre-season, where you can really nail down your identity and style.
“To do that when you’re playing every six or seven days is a real challenge because you get limited time on the training pitch, but overall it’s been positive.
“I’m content with where we are and I see signs of progress.”
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: “Generally the dressing rooms look after themselves but I will speak to the boys [to be positive].
“The perfect situation would be 9 clear 30+ goals but it’s not possible, so let’s go from here. Whatever happens tomorrow night, if we win, it helps. If not, we train for Cup final. Ideal world, we win them all. We have to respond. Only chance to win is to win all the games.”
