Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli has taken to social networking site Twitter in order to rally the fans before today’s Premier League clash with Aston Villa at Anfield.
The Italian international joined the Reds from AC Milan towards the end of the summer transfer window for a reported fee of £16 million.
The 24-year-old made his debut for the Anfield outfit against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane before the international break as his side cruised to a 3-0 victory.
