Premier League: Liverpool come from behind to beat Aston Villa 2-1 

Liverpool beat Aston Villa

Liverpool put an end to their six-match Premier League losing streak with a vital 2-1 win over Aston Villa at Anfield. 

Jurgen Klopp got his first Premier League win at Anfield in the year when his side came from a goal down to beat Villa.

Ollie Watkins opened the scoring late in the first half – his second goal against the Reds this season, when his shot squared off Alisson and into the net.

Roberto Firmino thought he had pulled the Reds back into the match only for a VAR review to cancel the goal.

The Reds came into second half with more urgency and had their efforts rewarded when Salah headed the ball into the net to put the scores level.

Embattled Trent Alexander would seal the winner late in the match with a rocketing shot that flew past Emiliano Martinez.
The Reds welcome Real Madrid on Wednesday night for their second-leg Champions League fixture.
