Aston Villa Defeat Liverpool With 7-2 In Premier League Match.
Aston Villa defeat Liverpool with 7-2 as Liverpool started badly at Villa Park with a poor pass from Adrian Yesterday in Premier League Match.
“It’s hard to lose the way we lost tonight. First and foremost well done to Aston Villa, we have to give them the credit they deserve. It was one of those performances where we weren’t 100% at it from start to finish,” Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk said after the match.
“Overall, we’re all disappointed, we shouldn’t have lost with the numbers that we did but it’s about sticking together and making sure it doesn’t happen again.”
Villa continued to attack after the break and scored a fifth 10 minutes into the second half as Ross Barkley scored his first goal for his new club.
Salah pulled another goal back for the visitors but Villa captain Jack Grealish joined another two to seal an historic victory for a club who only avoided eviction from the Premier League last season on the end day of the season.
“I think when the first one went in I pinched myself a bit because of how early it was,” Watkins said. “I’m delighted to contribute and that we won at the end of the day. It’s unbelievable to score and get a hat trick.”
Earlier on Sunday, Manchester United lost 6-1 to Tottenham, making this the first time both the Red Devils and Liverpool scored six goals each on the same day in the two clubs’ history.
