Updated: September 4, 2014

Match Date: 13 September 2014 (local time)

Venue: Anfield


A fierce battle is about to take place between Liverpool and Aston Villa as they meet one another in Anfield. The two will be competing for a higher spot in the Premier League table and winning the upcoming match can set the tone of their succeeding performances.


The contenders


Liverpool did not take its defeat against Manchester City lightly. It signaled a bad start and a weak title campaign.


But Brendan Rodgers is a man determined to win every battle that comes along his way. The same philosophy runs in the minds of Liverpool members and so when they went against Tottenham, the latter could only look in awe and disappointment as they were easily thrashed by 3 goals. The result broke Tottenham’s impressive run and at the same time, sent a strong message of how eager Liverpool is in securing this season’s title.


Aston Villa

It is quite unusual to see Aston Villa sit comfortably within the ranks of Premier League’s elite. But no matter how “unusual” it is, the club is on a mission to impress.
Still undefeated in its last 3 matches, the Villans snatched another win at Hull’s expense. Its victory in its first 2 matches were well-deserved, but the biggest question, which they have to face is whether they have what it takes to go against a better squad, Liverpool.


Possible head turners

Mario Balotelli’s debut in Liverpool’s camp witnessed the controversial striker get down to his scoring business. He did not score though, but he has been taking crucial shots that will threaten the team’s opponents.


What the odds say

Liverpool, of course, is the top pick of sports betting sites such as 12BET. The club is valued to win at a profitable odd of 1.24.
