Liverpool wins their second league match against
Liverpool is gradually becoming tournament favourite as they win their second league match against Aston Villa. The platform for victory was set during a first half in which the visitors were utterly dominant. Villa improved markedly after the break but the damage was done. Aston Villa’s first win against Arsenal was a tangible signs of progress but against Liverpool they looked flat and, perhaps, fatigued by those two demanding trips to London.
Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge finished off a flowing first-half move to score his eighth goal in seven league games. Villa were outplayed early on but improved in the second half, with Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet twice denying Christian Benteke. Both sides had late penalty appeals waved away by referee Mark Clattenburg.
Three UEFA Cups and three UEFA Super Cups winners are giving strong signal to Jose Mournho and David Moyes that this season’s battle will be tough. Liverpool won 0-1 against Aston Villa at Villa Park. Striker Daniel Sturridge scored the only goal of the match
