Defending Champion Liverpool were thought the lessons of their life, as they were slaughtered 7-2 by Aston Villa, at the Villa Park.

Ollie Watkins opened the scoring for Aston Villa, with a brace, both goals assisted by Jack Grealish. Egyptian striker Mohammed Salah reduced the deficit to 1 goal.

While it seems like, Liverpool are set for a dramatic comeback, McGinn added another for Villa, Ollie Watkins made it four before half-time.

Liverpool came into the second-half with the same character showed in the first-half but Chelsea loanee Ross Barkley made it five with a sumptuous hit. Mohammed Salah added a consolation goal for the Reds, as there was no way back realistically.

Jack Grealish who assisted an hat-trick of assists, scored a brace to leave the scoreline at 7-2.

Liverpool some days ago, confirmed that Senegalese player Sadio Mane has tested positive to COVID-19 and his in self-isolation. Hours before the game Alisson was sidelined with a injury worry.

Adrian would be blamed for some of those goals scored, while Liverpool defensive buffonery made things worse for Jurgen Klopp’s men.

With this victory Aston Villa ensures Liverpool won’t continue dominance they usually have at the Vila Park.
