The former Premier League manager has been previewing a crunch clash for both clubs.
But the former manager says he is a big fan of Villa midfielder Jack Grealish, a 'fantastic' player he loves watching.
Both the Reds and Aston Villa have begun their seasons poorly but Redknapp is backing a home win at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
He wrote on Kicca: "Liverpool 1–0 Aston Villa.
"This is a big game for both teams. No Benteke is a blow for Liverpool but I think they’ll just edge it. Grealish looks a fantastic young player for Villa though, I loved watching him the other night."
However good Grealish may be, though, defeat would certainly add to the pressure already surrounding Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood after a poor start to his side's Premier League campaign.
The problem with Sherwood is he's always gung-ho. His only tactic ever seems to be 'all out attack' - and his transfer policy appears the same. Things need to be done in stages but the Villa boss has rushed in, selling and buying a huge amount of players in equal measure.
That said, Aston Villa appear to have a much better chance of turning things around than Liverpool right now. And, while defeat for Sherwood would be far from ideal, a loss for Brendan Rodgers would be an outright disaster.
