Liverpool welcome back Gerard Houllier to Anfield, six years after he left Anfield. The Aston Villa boss is likely to receive a warm reception but it is unlikely that his struggling team will be shown any charity. Villa hover just above the relegation zone and with Anfield turning into a fortress once again it  is hard to see past anything other than a home win. SportingBet are offering 10/1 on a 3-0 win for Liverpool which might be worth a pound or two.

So who’s going to get the goals? Well, Fernando Torres is going to explode at some point surely but at odds on to score at  anytime there simply isn’t any value there. So I’m going to plump for a slightly different choice and take a punt on Raul Meireles who is 8/1 to open the scoring on the night. The Portuguese has a rocket in his boots and it’s only a matter of time before he opens his Premier League account.

But for those that don’t think this is Liverpool’s match to lose, another intersting looking bet can be found on the half time / full time market with Villa to be leading at the break but for the match to end a draw currently at aan enticing 18/1.

Good luck and enjoy the game!
