Publish date:

Liverpool overcame a stubborn Aston Villa from one goal down to win the match 2-1 and send themselves, temporarily, fourth place. 

Trent Alexander-Arnold scored a 91st minute screamer to secure the three points for his side and end a run of six consecutive losses at Anfield.

Ollie Watkins' effort squirmed under Alisson to make it 0-1 to the visitors, but Mohamed Salah scored his 28th goal of the season as he headed the ball into an empty net. 

Roberto Firmino had a goal disallowed by VAR after a controversial offside call on Diogo Jota, prompting more calls to change the rules of the law. 

England manager Gareth Southgate was in attendance to watch the 22-year-old score the winner, but what did the fans have to say about Alexander-Arnold's strike and the game itself.

More respect needed for Liverpool's right back it seems.

Jamie don't. Not long until the mighty Kop sees fans again!

A reason as to why Liverpool have struggled this season. Can the team afford to not have a natural striker in the side?

VAR nearly stole all the headlines. Let us know on Twitter @LFCTransferRoom what you thought of the decision to disallow Firmino's goal. 

We didn't see much of Sadio Mane today, but it'll be hard for Jurgen Klopp to pick him over someone to face Real Madrid on Wednesday.

Huge three points taken, but the win will put The Reds in the right mind frame to get the result they need an overcome the 3-1 aggregate score at Anfield in the Champions League.
