THE PREDICTION

This is something of a mismatch on paper as champions Liverpool face off against struggling Aston Villa. This will be Liverpool’s first match at Anfield since winning the title and they will be desperate to bounce back from the mauling delivered by Man City on Thursday night. That was only their second defeat in the league all season and Jurgen Klopp and his players will be desperate to bounce back even with nothing on the line. With still struggling to shore up defensively, expect a comfortable win for Klopp’s men.
