Big game on Merseyside tonight as the Villa arrive with Gerard Houllier in charge.
Gerard has been chucking his weight or rather his reputation about recently and Phil Thompson has even backed him up, going so far to add that he rates Houllier as being in the same class as Shankly.
Form wise, there is little between the two clubs. But Liverpool’s loss at White Hart Lane was a cruel one and I believe that they should pick up tonight where they left off after thumping West Ham 3-0.
Villa seem to be drifting. Any feel good factor of their having a new manager seemed to evaporate almost instantly.We keep hearing tales of Ashley Young being sought after by other Premiership clubs, but it’s very difficult to believe that there is an iota of truth in any of them.
John Barnes on Talksport this morning feels that home advantage will really count tonight and I think he’s right. Villa are lacking in too many areas and I don’t think they’ll get away with it at Anfield.
I’m going with Barnesy, 2-0…
