Betting Tip: Liverpool @ 17/20 with williamhill

Liverpool have been a box of frogs this season, with the Reds inconsistent under Brendan Rodgers and they are faring little better now that Jurgen Klopp has taken charge.

However, there have been mitigating circumstances with the German who has had to contend with a problematic injury list and the sort of fixture congestion that could drive a man to drink.

That said, Philippe Coutinho is back in the squad and so is Daniel Sturridge who looked bright at the Boleyn Ground last week. Klopp was also full of praise for Christian Benteke and that’s not even mentioning how excellent Roberto Firmino has been recently.

The Brazilian has taken a while to find his feet since arriving from Hoffenheim although he’s now performing to a high level and Liverpool could get the better of an Aston Villa side sitting bottom of the table.

Remi Garde has done plenty to improve matters at Villa Park and the Frenchman looks set to stay on as manager irrespective of whether his team drop out of the division this term.

A 2-0 win over Norwich last weekend means that the gap to safety is just eight points although a recent pummelling at home to Manchester City in the FA Cup illustrates that confidence is still threadbare.

Therefore, while we don’t usually say this, we’re happy to take a punt on Liverpool at odds-on to claim three points due to their sheer array of attacking options.
