Aston Villa (AVL) will go up against Liverpool (LIV) in the upcoming third-round game of the FA Cup on Friday night, January 8 (January 9 as per Indian timings) at 1:15 AM IST. The game will be played at the Villa Park in Birmingham, England. Here is our Aston Villa vs Liverpool prediction, information on how to watch Aston Villa vs Liverpool live in India and where to catch Aston Villa vs Liverpool live scores.
Aston Villa, who are enjoying an impressive campaign, defeated Liverpool 7-2 in the Premier League earlier this season, but Jürgen Klopp is likely to put out a strong side to avoid another embarrassment. Both the teams will be entering Friday's contest after a loss. While Villa were defeated by Man United on Saturday, Liverpool failed to take down Southampton in the Premier League. Klopp’s team are still at the top of the league table, but their recent performances have not been up to the mark.
Considering the recent form of the teams, our AVL vs LIV Dream11 prediction is that Liverpool will come out on top in this contest.
