After going 27 games unbeaten on the way to the title last season, Jurgen Klopp’s men lost in a demoralising fashion.

It took just four minutes for them to fall behind, as goalkeeper Adrian’s mistake gifted Ollie Watkins a goal through a Jack Grealish assist.

Watkins then fired his second soon after, cutting inside Joe Gomez and finding the top corner with a superb finish.

Mohamed Salah halved the deficit, but Villa’s advantage was immediately restored as John McGinn’s deflected volley found a way in, before Watkins headed in for his hat-trick.

From bad to worse for Liverpool

Ross Barkley then made it five as his effort cannoned off a Reds player and over Adrian, before Grealish added two more, with Salah’s strike in between nothing more than a consolation.

Salah then looked to have restored some hope with his second of the night, but it quickly proved to be a consolation with Jack Grealish proceeding to help himself to a remarkable brace.

The Villa captain first profited from a bit of luck when his deflected strike beat Adrian all ends up, yet there could be no denying the brilliance of his second with a fine one-on-one finish.
