Aston Villa v Liverpool Match Report

Liverpool grasped their fifth away win of the season and three points at Villa Park this afternoon.

The Reds took on Aston Villa and won 0-2 thanks to stunnings goals from Craig Bellamy and Martin Skrtle in the first half.

Liverpool were all over Aston Villa from the start. It wa sonly ten minutes in when Stewart Downing, flooded with boos from his former fans, took a corner which Jonjo Shelvey then created the chance for Bellamy to strike the ball into the net at close range.

It was only five minutes later when another corner turned into the second goal. Bellamy's corner kick was perfect for defender Martin Skrtel to score a header.

The home side were obviously suffering without Gabriel Agbonlahor (suspended) and Darren Bent (injured). Aston Villa struggled to create any chance, but Charlse N'Zogbia got the closest with a shot in the first half that went over the bar.

Liverpool had the chance to create a bigger gap in the scoring, but striker Luis Suarez had hit just the underside of the crossbar and the ball bounced outside the net. Suarez was given a standing ovation nonetheless when he was substituted by Andy Carroll in the 74th minute by Liverpool fans showing their support in light of his ongoing trial with The FA.

The Reds now see themselves in sixth place on the Barclay's Premier League Table, just behind Arsenal who have the same amount of points but remain ahead on goal difference. Aston Villa are in tenth place.
