Liverpool’s home campaign in the Premier League comes to a close this weekend. The Reds will be looking for maximum points that could put them into the top-four. It will be an emotional day at Anfield, as Liverpool bids farewell to Roberto Firmino, but they come into this fixture in excellent form after winning each of their last six.
Liverpool has won their final home match of the Premier League season in each of the last six. Meanwhile, they have lost their final home match of a campaign on just one occasion in the previous eleven seasons. The Reds have also won nine of their previous ten clashes with Aston Villa in the Premier League.
Unai Emery has certainly transformed Aston Villa since his arrival, and there will be confidence ahead of the 2023-24 season. Villa could yet end the season in a European place, but they will likely need to win both remaining fixtures to have a chance of snatching sixth from under the noses of Brighton & Hove Albion.
Villa ended a two-game losing run in their previous fixture, as they registered a deserved 2-1 home win over Tottenham Hotspur. The team from the West Midlands have won six times at Anfield in the Premier League era, only Chelsea and Man United have won more frequently away from home against Liverpool.
Liverpool vs Aston Villa Prediction
It will be an emotional day at Anfield on Saturday, but there will be huge stakes on the line for the Reds. They must win to keep alive their hopes of a Champions League finish, and it could be hard to bet against them achieving that feat after winning nine of their last ten against the Villa.
