It was an intense battle at Villa Park which eventually saw Champions League winners, Liverpool, beat host Aston Villa 2-1.

Liverpool scored two late goals – the first which was netted by Andy Robertson and the second Sadio Mané on injury time.

It was a cruel blow for Aston Villa who were leading with Trezeguet’s first goal for the club from John McGinn’s free-kick.

Villa managed to hold their defense until the dying moment when Robertson’s equalizer paved the way for the Reds.

Liverpool retain top of Premier League and will be preparing to face rival, Manchester City.

Aston Villa who have won two games earlier this month, now lost two games back to back will be in 16th position, three points above relegation zone.
