In that game, Liverpool had 65% possession and 16 attempts at goal with 7 on target. For Liverpool, goals were scored by Diogo Jota (64', 82') and Mohamed Salah (68'). Arsenal got 3 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target.
Their more recent scorelines really do illustrate the point that there has been much resilience in the Liverpool rearguard. The Reds have kept it tight, resulting in the tally of goals that have gone in at their end during their previous six clashes standing at 2. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily be sustained into this match, however.
Ahead of this clash, Liverpool have not won at home in their last 8 league games. They will be so desperate to end this run.
Aston Villa come into this encounter after a 3-1 Premier League win to defeat Fulham in their last match.
In that match, Aston Villa had 52% possession and 14 attempts on goal with 4 on target. For Aston Villa, goals were scored by Trézéguet (78', 81') and Ollie Watkins (87'). On the other side, Fulham got 15 attempts on goal with 7 on target. Aleksandar Mitrović (61') was the scorer for Fulham.
Over the course of 5 of the previous 6 clashes involving Aston Villa, a comparatively low number of goals have been struck between them and opposing teams. The overall average goals scored per game within that spell comes out as a meagre 1.67, with the number of goals averaged by The Villans standing at 0.83.
When taking all factors into account, Liverpool will probably be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target. At the other end, Aston Villa may well struggle to score a goal of their own but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be getting the chances to score, too.
