    Premier League: Liverpool vs Aston Villa LIVE!

    Probable Lineups…

    suarez flexLiverpool (4-3-3): Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Sakho, Cissokho, Lucas, Gerrard, Henderson, Coutinho, Sturridge, Suarez

    Last week Daniel Sturridge came on as a substitute and managed to score on his return from injury to reform the deadly SAS partnership with Luis Suarez.  Liverpool will look to go on the attack and keep themselves in the top four.

    Aston Villa (4-4-2): Guzan, Lowton, Vlaar, Clark, Luna, Bacuna, Westwood, Delph, Weimann, Benteke, Agbonlahor

    Paul Lambert fielded a 3-5-2 against Arsenal last weekend but due to an injury to Nathan Baker will probably revert to a 4-4-2, with back amongst the goals Christian Benteke and Gabriel Agbonlahor leading the line.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    Liverpool were rampant putting 5 goals past Villa back in the 2008-2009 season.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    SAS

    With 22 goals and leading the fantasy points chart by a country mile, you can not look further than Luis Suarez for this fixture.  However, he is already owned by 52.3% in the Official Fantasy Premier League game, so for a differential why not turn to his strike partner Daniel Sturridge (who is also only worth 9.2 points compared to Suarez’ 13.4).

    Stats to get your head around…
