Mohamed Salah to score in goal fest, but can Grealish cause problems?
The 2020/21 Premier League campaign has got off to a flyer – with more than 100 goals scored already this season!
Teams seem to be more attack-minded than ever and the goal fest continued this gameweek with a stunning 16 goals scored in the four matches played on Saturday.
Sunday is likely to be just as entertaining and reigning champions Liverpool will hope to continue their perfect start to the campaign when they take on Aston Villa.
Here are our predictions and betting tips for the Aston Villa vs Liverpool fixture…
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool haven’t been at their best yet but boast three wins from three – an ominous sign.
If they get out of third gear, they could really put a team to the sword and it’s 4/11 for them to score 2+ goals against Villa.
The Reds have looked formidable in attack and Mo Salah and Sadio Mane already have six goals between them this term.
Salah will surely be hungry to score on Sunday as he hasn’t netted since his hat-trick against Leeds on the opening day.
Liverpool to win and Salah to have 2 or more shots on target this weekend is 10/11, while Salah to score anytime, Mane to score anytime and Liverpool to win is 9/4.
Villa, though, will be determined to upset the odds and are in great form, winning four on the spin in all competitions.
They have been buoyed by the signing of Ross Barkley from Chelsea this week and we could get a first glimpse of him in a Villa shirt on Saturday.
Barkley could strike up a good partnership in midfield with club captain Jack Grealish, who is a man for the big occasion.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher recently claimed Grealish wasn’t good enough to play for the Premier League champions and he might just be keen to prove him wrong.
While we expect Liverpool to win, Villa can cause them problems and Grealish is their chief provider. He is a tempting 6/1 to get an assist on Sunday night.
When the two sides face each other, there have been plenty of goals recently, including a 5-0 win for Villa in the Carabao Cup last term and a 6-0 win for Liverpool back in February 2016.
You can get 8/15 on there being over 2.5 goals in the game.
