Match week 16 of the Premier League will bring football action to Villa Park, with hosts Aston Villa set to clash with Liverpool, on Sunday, December 18, 2011.
Aston Villa are coming off a commendable 2-1 win away against Bolton, in match week 15, only their second win in eight league games. Marc Albrighton broke Villa’s three-match goal drought on 34 minutes and Stiliyan Petrov doubled the lead six minutes later. Bolton came up with an improved display after the break, resulting in a reduction of the margin of defeat, on the back of a goal by Ivan Klasnic. That said, Villa were deserved winners, on the night. The first goal resulted when Albrighton converted a low cross from N’Zogbia, and the second was a lucky one when a shot by Petrov deflected off defender Gary Cahill.
In match week 15, Liverpool registered a 1-0 victory over QPR, in a match hosted by the Merseysiders at Anfield. Suarez scored the only goal of the game on 48 minutes even as Liverpool left their supporters frustrated for much of the proceedings, with several missed scoring opportunities. Suarez was the main difference between the sides and the Uruguayan striker created the opportunities that he failed to finish. maxi also had a couple of missed chances and in the end, Kenny Dalglish’s wards were relieved to take away three full points after being kept at bay by veteran keeper Cerny between the QPR posts.
