Liverpool, Villa, stretches winning streak

Liverpool and Aston Villa are two teams who are aiming to extend their own winning streaks when they meet in their Premier League match.

However, that game ended with a 3-2 defeat against Man City, ending their title defense as early as the 4th round. Their meeting will be on December 27, 2022, at 1:30 AM (GMT+8), with Aston Villa hosting this game.

This match will be the 200th meeting between these two teams already, and it was the visitors who has the advantage here.

From the past four matches these two teams played, Liverpool won four matches, scoring nine goals, conceding three. However, the hosts won their last two home games, and are looking to have the same result for this game, scoring as much as seven goals.

From their World Cup break, Liverpool already recorded two wins in a row; a win against Tottenham Hotspur. However, during their meeting against Man City on their Round of 16 match in the EFL Cup. Moreover, this squad also has a clear advantage against their opponent. In fact, they dominated their previous matches, winning 100 games. Moreover, they were also exceptional from their previous games, as they only suffered one defeat from their last five games. Liverpool are currently at the 6th in the Premier League, with 22 points across their name. They can no longer afford to lose in this match as they might drop in the league standings.

Some of the players who played in the World Cup will not be available for this match, as Ibrahima Konate have not returned for Liverpool. He is expected to start training with Liverpool on December 27. Additionally, injuries will hurt this squad, as they some of their players are still recovering from their injuries.

Before the break, Villa actually won their last two league games, where it was Danny Ings who overturned a one-goal deficit. In fact, they had as much as seven goals in those two league games, conceding three. With that being said, coming into this game, the hosts actually have a good momentum. Additionally, although the visitors have been dominant from their previous matches, they have been doing well at home. In fact, their last three wins against Liverpool are all from their home games. This squad looks to extend their beautiful run in the Premier League by winning this match.

Emiliano Martinez, who recently won the World Cup will not be available for this game. Additionally, if Robin Olsen can overcome his minor problem, he can be available for Villa in this match. Diego Carlos, and Jacob Ramsey remains to be out in this match, as they are still recovering from their injuries.

Liverpool (1.0)
