Liverpool will be aiming to break an all time Premier League winning record when they take on Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa on Tuesday evening..
Klopp’s men have been compelled to play out a 1 1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur at home on Saturday, a consequence which saw them fall three points behind Manchester City, who won 5-0 at Newcastle United on Sunday.
However, the Reds will be confident of going back to winning ways against Villa on Tuesday as they’ve yet to drop a point against teams beginning the day in the bottom half of the table this season, winning all eighteen games by an aggregate of 52-4.
If Liverpool score maximum points against the 11th-placed Villa, they’d be only the next team in the Premier League history, after Manchester United in 2006-07, to score maximum points in 100 % of their games against the bottom half of the club in one campaign.
Liverpool have won seven of the last eight Premier League meetings against Villa, but they suffered a shock 7-2 defeat at Villa Park previous season.
The Reds would go to the top of the Premier League in case they win by a minimum of 4 or more goals on Tuesday, after beating Gerrard’s men 1 0 at Anfield in the reverse fixture in December..
