Dean Smith’s in-form Aston Villa on Sunday night stunned Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool with a shocking 7-2 win during Premier League clash at the Villa Park.
Liverpool ship seven for the first time in more than half a century, and Villa were absolutely value for money.
They could have had more. It was four by the break, Watkins with a sizzling hat-trick, McGinn with a deflected strike and a Salah finish in response.

Liverpool never got to grips with Villa’s press or their fast-pace attacking, and they were made to pay.
Grealish and Barkley had shots deflect in, Grealish later adding his second after being given the freedom of Villa Park by Liverpool’s high line.
The result takes Villa up to second, with a 100 per cent record but having played a game less than the leaders.
Only two teams have won every Premier League game they have played so far this season:
