Game week 3 ended with lots of drama with 37 goals scored. So far this season, 18 penalties have been awarded to 12 teams with Leicester city getting 5 penalty calls. Here is a look at what Game week 4 might look like.
Aston villa vs Liverpool
Aston villa play host to Premier league Champions at Villa Park, as both teams currently
hold a 100% record in this EPL campaign.
Aston Villa won emphatically against Fulham last week and they will be looking to cause a
big upset against Liverpool. Villa’s new found confidence isn’t far fetched as they have won
their two PL outings this season and Dean Smith’s men will be hoping to go into next week’s
international break with that confidence. They have also just welcomed Ross Barkley from
Chelsea on loan, a move many people believe might hurt Frank Lampard in the end and he
could make his debut against the Reds.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are looking to get all three points despite the shocking announcement
that Sadio Mane, one of its prolific front engines has caught Coronavirus. Mane is the 2nd
LFC player to have caught the virus during this season as the Reds had to face Arsenal
without Thiago Alcantara last week. Despite having a few injury and virus woes, Liverpool
played a proper game against Arsenal and got 3 points including a debut goal for Diogo
Jota who should be replacing Mane for this game week. Klopp’s side is known to tactically
score goals and will try their best to score against Aston Villa who haven’t conceded any
goal in the PL this season without Mane, who has been behind the 3 goals in the past 2 PL
games for Liverpool. Villa were a tough opponent for the Reds last season but a win for
Liverpool means that they are the first team in the EPL to start three seasons consecutively,
with 4 victories back to back.
Villa are unbeaten in their last six league matches while Liverpool have lost just one of their
19 PL games at Villa Park and their last away loss was in 2011. Aston Villa are looking to
win first three consecutive PL games with this match at the end of the game, but Liverpool
should be able to stand the test of time and go home with all 3 points.
