Liverpool edge past Villa to keep title hopes alive
Sadio Mane earned Liverpool a come-from-behind 2-1 win at Aston Villa to keep the Premier League title race alive.
Douglas Luiz’s early goal had left Jurgen Klopp’s side up against it inside three minutes but Joel Matip soon equalised and Mane completed the turnaround midway through the second half. The win moves Liverpool back level on points with leaders Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola’s side still have a game in hand and the victory at Villa Park also came at a cost – Fabinho trudging off injured in the first half. But Jurgen Klopp will just be glad to have come through this test as former Reds hero Steven Gerrard certainly had Villa fired up.
