Also an opportunity for them to stick it up to Grealish - in any case they will have more of a motivation to actually play than Southampton and Wolves - plus look at their form vs. Wolves/Southamptons.
Oh they will 100% be motivated, I don't doubt that for a second. They will go for it. And they should.
My point is, this whole win it for liverpool is really just tv narrative. Nobody mentioned a douglas luiz own goal yet?
All of that aside, it is a game of football both sides will want to win, and villa won't want to lose. Same as Brighton was, same as West Ham was, same as QPR was. This is no different.
Edit, disagree they will havr mord motivation than Southampton and wolves. Which Liverpool will beat. Because they are the better team, not because they rolled over.
