Liverpool v Villa show: Collymore/Albrighton/Holt on AVTV

Stan Collymore, Marc Albrighton, Grant Holt and Christian Benteke are the special guests on this week's AVTV pre-match show.

The quality quartet all look ahead to the clash with Liverpool on Saturday.

Check out the preview programme now.

Collymore chats about the importance of Benteke, insisting that the giant forward can go on a scoring run now that he is back among the goals.

Collymore looks at the virtues of the opposition and picks out Luis Suarez as a player to be wary of due to his clinical form.

The TalkSPORT presenter also reflects on his time spent at both clubs.

Talking at Banners Gate Primary to promote Tickets for Schools, Albrighton tells us how much he values the support of the fans.

He talks about the positive influence Holt can have on the Villa camp having played with him at Wigan earlier this term.

He also discusses what he learnt in his spell with the Latics and his personal form in claret and blue.

Benteke also joins us and recalls his two goals at Anfield last time out. He talks us through the opposition's strengths and tells us he's expecting a difficult test because of their form of late.

Potential debutant Holt tells us that Anfield is a special place to play and remembers scoring there as a sub in a 1-1 draw for Norwich under Paul Lambert.

We close off with some goals scored at Liverpool over the years, including Andreas Weimann's outrageous backheel from our previous away trip.
