Liverpool are one of the most in-form teams in world football right now. Jürgen Klopp has guided the Reds to a seriously impressive seven straight Premier League victories. This remarkable run has seen Liverpool force their way into the battle to secure a top-four spot after they had previously been written off by many fans and pundits.
Newcastle’s midweek victory over Brighton was damaging to Liverpool’s chances of securing CL football. But the Reds will aim to take maximum points from their remaining two fixtures and hope the Magpies slip up with the finish line in sight. For that reason, nothing but three points will be deemed good enough against Aston Villa, but the away team also has plenty of motivation to win.
Aston Villa have been a remarkable run under Unai Emery. The Birmingham-based team went 10 games unbeaten between February and April, and while defeats to Man Utd and Wolves in recent weeks halted the team’s momentum, Villa returned to winning ways last weekend with a victory over Tottenham. They could still qualify for the Europa League, but that would most likely require a victory at Anfield, a tall order for a team that last won at the iconic stadium in September 2014.
The reverse fixture at Villa Park was played back in December and saw Liverpool comfortably win 1-3, but that was a very different Villa team still learning how to play the Emery way. Will Liverpool’s excellent winning streak continue, or can Aston Villa spoil the party? You’ll need to watch a Liverpool vs Aston Villa live stream to find out, and we’ll show you how to watch from anywhere down below.
