Aston Villa vs Liverpool, Premier League Gameweek 31: Open Thread

aston villa Aston Villa vs Liverpool, Premier League Gameweek 31: Open Thread

After yesterday’s shock sacking of Martin O’Neill, Aston Villa footballers, manager and supporters may perceive Sunderland as a wounded animal and an opportunity to leapfrog over them to safety. After all, if Paul Lambert’s side can get a vital home victory against Liverpool today at Villa Park, the Midlands side will jump from 18th to 16th spot, pushing Wigan into the relegation zone and pulling Sunderland closer into danger.

At the same time, Liverpool are eyeing an opportunity to close the gap between them and sixth place Everton. It could be argued that a victory for Villa has greater importance, but Liverpool will want to enact revenge after their embarrassing defeat at home against Villa earlier in the season.

Before, during or after today’s match, post your rants, raves, questions and observations in the comments section below.

Have a wonderful Sunday.
