Soooooo…Liverpool won the Premier League for the first time, partied hard, and then got shellacked by FFP violating Manchester City their first match as champs.

Not the statement Jurgen Klopp was likely looking for from his men.

Fortunately, Liverpool have a chance to immediately course-correct on Sunday. The Reds host relegation candidates Aston Villa at Anfield.

Liverpool vs Aston Villa Preview

After getting blasted by City, Klopp stated that he will continue to play his strongest roster for the remainder of the season. Liverpool can still break City’s record for most points in a season (100).

If that’s the case, look for Liverpool to put on a performance more in line with their Crystal Palace showing than the duds they laid vs Everton and City. While the Reds needed some late game heroics to get past Villa in their first meeting, the City beat-down they got is a major wake-up call.

Liverpool’s workman midfield should neutralize Jack Grealish. Elsewhere on the pitch, mismatches abound. Villa have given up the most goals (60) and have the highest xGA (64) in the EPL. Liverpool have the second most xG in the league (61). Sometimes, it really is that simple. Liverpool will roll.

Prediction

Look for the Reds to take out their frustrations on the Villans. This could go 4-0 or 5-0.
