Watching Arsenal end their EFL Cup adventure in midweek, Liverpool will turn their attention back to Premier League duties when the defending champions make the trip to Villa Park on Sunday night.

Last seen on top-flight duties extending on their 100% start to the 2020/2021 campaign, Jurgen Klopp’s men landed a thumping 3-1 win against the Gunners and the Reds find themselves in the midst of another free-scoring run.

On the flip side, while Aston Villa might have seen Championship outfit Stoke shock them on Cup duties earlier in the week, it has been a very impressive start for Sunday’s hosts and they are certainly enjoying a purple patch.

However, in for what is an unenviable step up in class on home soil this weekend, they do hold what is a worrying top-flight record against the defending champions.

Hit with a 2-0 defeat when they welcome Villa to Anfield back in July, Sunday’s hosts have lost each of their last four straight Premier League meetings against Liverpool and a similar away victory in the Midlands can be found priced at 4/11 with Paddy Power.

Villa flying high

Although Dean Smith’s men might have seen Stoke spring a real upset at Villa Park while on EFL Cup duties in midweek, the former Brentford boss has rightfully been filled with praise for his side’s start to the New Year.

Putting in what turned out to be a rampant display against a leaky Fulham defence in West London, Sunday’s hosts picked up a 3-0 romp in the capital and have landed back-to-back Premier League wins. In fact, Villa have opened a Premier League campaign with back-to-back victories for the first time since 1996.

Marking their return to action with three points against last year’s surprise package Sheffield United, Smith’s side have continued to build off of a very impressive end to the extended 2019/2020 campaign.

Now unbeaten in their last six top-flight appearances continuing on from last season, fans around the Midlands would have also been hugely excited to see Jack Grealish open his account earlier in the week.

Opening the scoring at Craven Cottage on Monday evening and also finding the net on EFL Cup duties last month, Villa’s MVP was rewarded with another spot in Gareth Southgate’s squad and can be found priced as high as 5/1 with Ladbrokes to extend on his tally this weekend.

Mane dazzles again

Although Liverpool’s heavily-altered squad might have seen Arsenal knock them out of the EFL Cup on penalties earlier in the week, JurgenKlopp’s men have certainly got out the traps fast and have already capitalized on Manchester City’s early slip-up.

Putting in a dominant display as they secured a 3-1 victory against the Gunners atAnfield on Monday night, the former Borussia Dortmund boss has seen his side collect nine points from their opening three appearances this season.

One of just three sides who can boast a 100% start among teams who have featured three times, the Reds also have one attacking MVP enjoying an eye-catching run heading into October.

Getting himself on the scoresheet and extending on what is a stellar record against Arsenal last time out, Sadio Mane has already racked up three Premier League strikes and will be confident of extending on that tally this weekend.

Finding the net in Liverpool’s 2-0 win against Sunday’s guests back in July, you might be interested to know that the Senegal ace can be found priced at 11/10 with Unibet to cash in at Villa Park.

Elsewhere, in a boost for Klopp’s side this weekend, skipper Jordan Henderson looks to have overcome an injury issue and could feature in the Midlands.
