Liverpool vs Aston Villa Match Analysis & Prediction
20/05/2023 5:00 pm
Liverpool face Aston Villa in the final game of their 2022-23 campaign on Saturday afternoon.
The Reds will seek an eighth successive victory in their bid to remain on the coattails of the top four, while Unai Emery’s side still harbors ambitions of a spot on the continent.
Liverpool’s three-goal thumping of Leicester City on Sunday left the Reds one point adrift of Manchester United and Newcastle United in fifth place.
But both teams still have a game in hand -the Magpies will play theirs against Brighton & Hove Albion on Thursday night.
Seven years after spending a decade at Arsenal, Unai Emery is winless against Liverpool in seven consecutive Premier League fixtures. During his ill-fated spell north of the river, the Merseysiders had always found success against the Spaniard’s side.
Liverpool vs. Aston Villa Head to head
Both sides have 25 games against each other with hosts taking 16 wins while visitors with 7 wins and 2 draws.
