Liverpool cruise past Aston Villa and look ahead to Christmas fixtures
Date Posted: 07/12/10
Roy Hodgson's Liverpool side are looking ahead to the Christmas fixture list after thrashing Aston Villa at Anfield.
The Merseyside club beat Gerard Houllier's side 3-0, thanks to goals from David N'Gog, Ryan Babel and Maxi Rodriguez to lift themselves up to eighth in the table.
They will now look ahead to a busy Christmas period, where they host Fulham at Anfield and then travel to Bloomfield Road on Boxing Day, hoping to pick up three points in front of those booking Blackpool hotels.
Before the new year, Liverpool will also take on Wolves and Bolton, fixtures which Hodgson will expect to get something out of.
Other stand-out ties on Boxing Day include a London derby between Fulham and West Ham, Manchester United looking to regain top-spot against Sunderland and Aston Villa hosting Harry Redknapp's unpredictable but entertaining Tottenham side.
However, the biggest clash over Christmas sees Arsenal taking on Chelsea, kicking off at 20:00GMT on Monday December 27th.
