HIGHLIGHTS: Aston Villa 1-2 Liverpool | MATIP & MANE COMPLETE THE COMEBACK

The game began with Aston Villa breaking the deadlock just three minutes in through Douglas Luiz.

Liverpool managed to level the scores in the sixth minute, when Matip pounced on the rebound after Emiliano Martinez’s save on Virgil Van Dijk to equalise.

Mane’s header went just wide before Danny Ings failed to hit the target and Naby Keita missed his kick despite being unmarked inside the box following a Trent Alexander-Arnold pass.

Liverpool struggled to break down a solid Villa defence after the break, but Mane managed to find a solution 65 minutes in. Diaz produced a fine cross from the left flank and the Senegalese forward headed home to turn the game around for Liverpool.

Mohamed Salah came off the bench to replace the Colombia international and Liverpool pushed for a third, but they lacked a final pass despite looking dangerous in attack.
