Aston Villa vs Liverpool by Rahul

Liverpool will take on Aston Villa in what theoretically should be a routine encounter for them, but performances of Liverpool have been a total mixed bag, with only the 5-4 win against Norwich being their only victory in the past 6 league encounters. Their team has been fairly inconsistent in putting a good team on the pitch while they have failed to deliver goals consistently offensively despite signing Origi, Benteke, Sturridge among their forwards. Liverpool will look to deploy Firming who put in a solid display in mid-week up front as a false 9 and should be supported by Lallana and Coutinho on the wings as they aim to put away this struggling Villa side. Liverpool will rely a lot on their wings as well as full backs in Clyne and Moreno to bomb forward, which results in them being among the highest teams in terms of team corner count in the league. Liverpool average around 7.3 corners per game with their last few games stats reading as follows:


Sunderland - 7 corners


Leicester - 12 corners


Norwich - 3 corners


Man Utd - 5 corners


Arsenal - 9 corners


West Ham - 9 corners


Leicester - 6 corners


Aston Villa on the other hand need to defend their goal and ensure that they do not concede anything. With Firmino deployed as a false 9; I expect many shots to be taken from outside the box, that could have Guzan diving around to push balls away. Aston Villa know they will be under pressure from Liverpool who will consider this a must win game to push them back to 8th spot in the league in the top half of the table. Aston Villa also like conceding a lot of corners to their opponents with an average of 5.3 corners per game conceded.


I think Liverpool should easily cross the 5.5 team corners mark in this game.
