LIVERPOOL vs ASTON VILLA
England Premier League
Saturday, 26th September 2015 - Kickoff 3:00pm
Both Liverpool and Aston Villa laboured to midweek home wins over lower league opposition from the Capital One Cup. Not particularly convincing performances and I feel you will see immense pressure on Liverpool to never cock this up like they almost did on Wednesday.
Liverpool took the lead against Carlisle but allowed an equaliser inside the 1st half along with the game went all the way to an extension cord and then penalties before Liverpool finally progressed. Had their defence been able to hold their opponents out they can had a simpler night, and I think they'll have gotten an earful regardless of the win.
Aston Villa also won, beating Birmingham City 1-0 although not without a fight. They struggled even at your home to score and can only accomplish that late on and merely the once. That kind of offensive showing won't work at Liverpool, who can defend significantly better this time around. Indeed, it really is Liverpool who could score several as Villa have demostrated great vulnerability within the way they blew a 2-0 lead against Leicester to forfeit 3-2.
The primary reason to support Liverpool, in addition to being home, may be the revenge angle, because Aston Villa knocked them out from the FA Cup with the Semi-Finals and broke everyone's hearts simply because all wanted to go on the finals on Steven Gerrard's birthday. I'm guessing they've got that defeat on the minds, where they blew a lead, and they're going to be shooting for a decisive win to produce up for this a bit.
