Brendan Rodgers takes the show on the road again this time to Villa Park and a struggling Aston Villa side whose manager appears to be running out of time.
Paul Lambert had adopted a similar plan to Rodgers when he took over at Villa, hoping to build a side out of youth and on a budget but it was quickly shown to be a false policy and Villa were lucky to escape relegation last season.
This season Lambert has introduced more experience to the side but it has not made a difference to the goal difference column and Villa languish precariously in the bottom half of the table just three points away from the drop.
Liverpool also have their own goal scoring problems but through trial, error and the improving form of some of his key summer signings they are beginning to show signs that there is life after Suarez and the goal difference column has finally moved into positive territory.
That they are 25 goals shy of the leaders Chelsea tells you how Liverpool have toiled this season to find the back of the net.
Liverpool are starting to look like a decent team though and they are very capable of putting a decent run of form together. The man of the match performance from Markovic was the highlight against Sunderland but also Mignolet started to look like a proper keeper and his kicking was much more assured.
With the return of Sterling from a much needed extended winter break, the massive improvement in form of Coutinho and Markovic and a defence that didn’t resemble a leaky sieve on Saturday I’m going to back the reds to win for the first time in a long time and extend their unbeaten sequence.
