Liverpool Aston Villa Odds : McLeish relegation fears to ease at Anfield as Reds misfire

It is the battle of two teams out of form at Anfield on Saturday when Liverpool play host to Aston Villa, as punters relish the 8/1 odds on offer from Betfred for Alex McLeish’s team to heap more misery on King Kenny.

The Reds are completely out of sorts at the moment and have lost six of their last seven games in Premier League.

Kenny Dalglish’s side had a nightmare at Newcastle last week, losing 2-0 and having goalkeeper Pepe Reina sent off. Reina will now miss a Premier League game for the first time in five years.

Dalglish has come under a lot of pressure in recent weeks with plenty of speculation about the Scotsman’s future. With his side sitting in eighth in the league and being overtaken by local rivals Everton, Dalglish will be desperate for all three points on Saturday.

Liverpool face Everton in the FA Cup semi-final next Saturday. This could be the only hope to save their season as well as the 61-year-old’s future as manager.

As for Aston Villa, they will be looking over their shoulders going into Saturday’s clash at Anfield. The Villains are just five points of the relegation zone.

With Alex McLeish’s side leaking goals at the back, conceding seven in two games, they could be facing a serious fight to stay in the Premier League. Villa fans would not have been expecting this at the start of the campaign.

It has been a tough week for Aston Villa of course with the news of Stilian Petrov’s illness and they will be looking to all pull together and pick up a result for their club captain.

McLeish’s side have not won on the road since January though and have only been victorious once in their previous nine attempts on Merseyside.

Liverpool ran out 2-0 winners earlier in the season, a result that at the time had fans talking of a top four finish.

It is all change now though and this one gets underway from 3pm on Saturday.
