Betting Tip: Aston Villa +1.00 @ 7/5 with bet365

Aston Villa are a dangerous team to be facing in an FA Cup semi-final. Since Tim Sherwood took charge, results have generally improved for the better and the new manager finally appears to be getting the best out of Christian Benteke.

Brendan Rodgers would dearly like a Benteke in his team, with Daniel Sturridge having experienced a stuttering season for Liverpool and the manager resorting to trying out Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling in a false nine position.

Steven Gerrard’s return from suspension provides the manager with an extra option, while Martin Skrtel should ensure the defence is robust enough, although Liverpool’s price is woefully short for what could be an evenly-matched tussle at Wembley.

We’re siding with Villa on the handicap market and wouldn’t be in the least surprised if the Midlands side squeak a win as they did at White Hart Lane last weekend.
