Liverpool v Aston Villa Preview


Liverpool will play at home for the first time since the opening weekend of the Premier League as they prepare to take on Aston Villa and Tom Cleverley in Saturday’s evening kick-off.

After a disappointing defeat to fellow title challengers Man City, Liverpool got back on the horse with a convincing win against a lacklustre Tottenham side. Daniel Sturridge looks like he is going to miss this weekend’s game through a thigh injury, so will The Red Men have enough goals in the team to get the job done against Villa?

Paul Lambert’s side have arguably been the surprise package so far and are one of only three sides who remain unbeaten in the Premier League this season.

After being tipped for relegation by many fans and pundits across the nation, the Villains currently sit third in the league and will be travelling to Anfield full of confidence. Will they still be unbeaten after the weekend?

Despite Villa keeping clean sheets in their first two games of the season, we expect their defence to be breached by Liverpool… and more than once. The Anfield faithful will be looking forward to see their side in full force once more and the fine form of Raheem Sterling suggests that he will be the man to ignite Liverpool’s performance. Expect him to get his name on the score sheet.

Both Teams to Score: Yes – best odds at Betfair – no – best odds at PaddyPower

Each side have netted in three of their last five fixtures, with the last fixture at Anfield producing a score draw thriller back in January. Liverpool have notched six goals in their first three fixtures while The Villains have scored three times this season. Villa have scored in each of their last three visits to Liverpool.

Aston Villa have enjoyed success in recent visits to Anfield – they haven’t lost there in three games, winning once and drawing twice. They have become somewhat of a bogey side to Liverpool and have scored six times in those three visits. However, we expect the new and improved Liverpool defence to have done their homework and their clean sheet at White Hart Lane will have given them confidence.

Over/Under 2.5 goals: Over 2.5 goals – best odds at bet365 or Under 2.5 goals – best odds at BetVictor

Over 2.5 goals is the closest thing you’ll get to a dead cert this weekend. As mentioned, Villa are accustomed to scoring goals at Anfield and there has been over 2.5 goals scored in 16 of Liverpool’s last 17 Premier League games.

Man United v QPR Preview


Manchester United host QPR on Super Sunday with Louis van Gaal’s side still looking for their first win of the season.

After an encouraging pre-season, Manchester United have since suffered their worst start to a Premier League season since its inception in 92/93. They followed up their opening day defeat at home to Swansea with two consecutive draws away at Sunderland and Burnley.

It has prompted Van Gaal to spend £60m on Angel di Maria as well as a deadline day swoop for Radamel Falcao. After their purchases of Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind, United have spent over £150m in just one transfer window.

But will the new boys gel and produce instant results or will United’s agony continue a while longer?

QPR currently sit above United in the league table after picking up their first win of the season against Sunderland last Saturday. They will come to Old Trafford confident of causing an upset especially with the addition of Sandro, who will look to disrupt a new look United midfield.

Rio Ferdinand will be returning to Old Trafford for the first time since being released by the club. Will he turn it into a happy homecoming or a day to forget?

Full-time result: Man United win – best odds at Coral

With the additions of world-class quality in Angel di Maria and Radamel Falcao, United must surely pick up their first win of the season this weekend. Although QPR will be confident after their victory against Sunderland, United’s defence was slightly more assured against Burnley and Marcos Rojo will be available to strengthen that area.

Both teams to score: Yes – best odds at Coral – No – best odds at PaddyPower

Before their victory against Sunderland, QPR had failed to score in their first two Premier League games, while United have managed just two goals this season. Both teams have scored against each other just once in their last four fixtures, but with significant changes made to both sides the game may lack structure and fluidity, which could lead to both sides leaking goals.

United have never lost to QPR in the Premier League era with the Rs managing just two draws. However, Jamie Mackie did manage to find the net during their last trip to Old Trafford, which resulted in a 3-1 win to the hosts back in November of the 12/13 season.

Over/Under 2.5 goals: Over – best odds at bet365 – under – best odds at BetVictor 

United have won 2-0 in three of the last four fixtures against QPR, while over 2.5 goals has only been scored in one of their last six match-ups. Although we expect United to win, it may not be the hammering that many people think and QPR will set up to frustrate the home side.

Moneymaker: Under 2.5 goals
