Friends Of Liverpool

Following August’s defeat at Anfield by Aston Villa, it is time to claim all 3 points at Villa park tomorrow evening.
An own-goal by Lucas followed by a Curtis Davies header was bad enough, that day.
Despite a Fernando Torres goal, Liverpool’s misery was complete when Stevie G conceded a penalty and Ashley Young scored to give Martin O’Neill’s team a 3-1 victory at our ground.
Villa are 5 points above us in the table in 5th place.
A win tomorrow would bring us just 2 points behind them in the table and crucially, would bring us back into the ‘top four’ reckoning.
The victory against Wolves was very welcome and Rafa Benitez will be looking to build on that result with another good showing against a very good Villa outfit.
Steven Gerrard got his first goal in 13 matches which is a sign that he is getting back to his best again.
Alberto Aquilani did well on his first Premiership start, he will be hoping to play again in this game.
We will be hoping that El Nino will be able to find the net for us in this game and that the defence keeps a clean sheet against the likes of Carew and company.
We have a very good recent record at Villa Park with 5 wins and 4 draws in our last 9 visits there, so lets hope that record continues and we get a win to push us up the table.
