Aston Villa vs Liverpool: Reds can bounce back with a win

| 17.12.2011

Money back on losing first scorer bets if Suarez scores anytime

As their performances at Anfield have faltered this term, Liverpool have found themselves in the unusual position of performing better away from the screaming Kop.

The Reds have won just one of their previous five games at home while they have won three of their last four on the road.

However, they were defeated by Fulham at Craven Cottage in their last away game and face an Aston Villa side fresh off the back of a morale boosting win against Bolton…

Match odds

Liverpool’s defeat at Fulham was their first in five away games – a run that included consecutive wins against Chelsea.

The Reds are the 1/1 favourites heading into the game and a punt on them to bag another victory looks well worth consideration.

However, Villa won the last encounter between these sides 1-0 thanks to a goal from Stewart Downing – who is now plying his trade at Anfield – and are they are 3/1 to get consecutive league wins for the first time since Alex McLeish took charge in the summer.

Goal markets

This promises to be a tight game with only two goals scored in the previous three encounters between these sides at Villa Park.

Meanwhile, the last two meetings between these sides at Villa Park has seen just one goal separate the teams, with one win apiece.

Under 2.5 goals can be backed at 8/13, while under 1.5 goals is currently 2/1.

Finally, Luis Suarez bagged the only goal of the game against QPR last weekend and is 4/1 to open the scoring, while Darren Bent is the most likely Villa player to find the net and is 5/1 to score first.
