Liverpool vs Aston Villa Preview
With just eight games left in the season there is very little room for error left for Liverpool, who are three points off the top-four after a run of only five wins in their last 16 Premier League matches.
The bulk of that poor form can be attributed to a dreadful series of results at Anfield, where the Reds have scored only once in their last seven league games, conceding 10 in the process.
Only one of those fixtures has seen more than three goals in the match and it could be another tight affair here, considering Villa have netted six times in their last eight and shipped only seven.
