Liverpool are preparing to face Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday. Currently, the Reds are 7th in the league table with 49 points, while Villa are 9th with 44 points.
Ahead of the game BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.
“When these sides met earlier in the season it was the first sign that things were not all going to go Liverpool’s way this time.
“The Reds started the game at Villa Park with their first-choice central-defensive pairing of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, but still lost 7-2.
“It was a day to forget for Jurgen Klopp’s side but, if you’d told me then what would happen to their home form this season, I wouldn’t have believed you.
“So, it would be huge for Jurgen Klopp’s side if they can take the three points at Anfield on Saturday – something they haven’t done in any of their past eight games there, since 16 December.
“A home win would get that monkey off their back ahead of the visit of Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday, but it is far more important in terms of keeping them in touch with the top four.”
Lawrenson’s score prediction: 2-0
