Aston Villa v Liverpool Live
Liverpool will have to improve on their performance against Standard Liege if they are to have any hopes of coming away with a victory against Aston Villa this Sunday. Catch all the action in Aston Villa vs LiverpoolLive online on Live Sport Network’s streaming soccer feeds.
Liverpool huffed and puffed enroute to their 1-0 victory over the Belgian side on Wednesday and had to rely on an extra time strike by Dirk Kuyt to progress into the group stages. Liverpool have struggled for form in the pre season as well as in the four competitive matches played in the new season so far and manager Rafa Benitez will have to help his side find form sooner rather than later if they are to put a strong challenge for the Premiership title.
While Liverpool are the only other team to maintain a 100 percent record two games into the season, they have scored only four goals so far in four matches, including narrow one goal victories over Sunderland and Middlesbrough.
Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill meanwhile will be looking to register his side's first victory against Liverpool in more than 10 games. Villa have had a mixed start to the season, winning 4-2 against Manchester City on the opening weekend but losing 3-2 away to Stoke City last Saturday.
With his side in a very strong position to progress to the next round in the UEFA Cup, O'Neill is expected to field a weakened team against FH Hafnarfjordur on Thursday with one eye on the clash against Liverpool.
Liverpool will be without Steven Gerrard who is out with a groin injury while Steve Sidwell faces a race against time to be fit for Villa on the weekend.
