  • GOAL! SADIO MANE HEADS LIVERPOOL INTO THE LEAD! 1-0! It's taken just over 180 seconds but the Reds are on the front foot. Jones is played in down the right edge and he lofts a lovely cross in to the edge of the six-yard area. Villa's markers get their placement wrong and the striker nudges neatly in at the near post past Onodi.

  • GOAL! LOUIE BARRY LEVELS FOR ASTON VILLA! 1-1! MY WORD, THE HOSTS HAVE SQUARED THINGS UP WITH A SUPERB FINISH! Rowe picks up Onodi's goal-kick, and drags a throughball into space for the striker, who shrugs off Rhys Williams, races to the box and buries it into the bottom-right corner!

  • It goes from bad to worse for Liverpool now as Jones throws a reckless leg out in midfield to cut off a Villa move and gets booked for his troubles. The hosts look absolutely elated. Joyous doesn't cover the strength of their energy right now.

  • GOAL! GEORGINIO WIJNALDUM NETS FOR LIVERPOOL! 2-1! The Reds have the breakthrough they need! It is the midfielder, who missed some early sitters, atoning for them with a cool strike from the edge of the box, slamming a Minamino cut-back in at the right post.

  • It is the last act for Minamino up front too - and what a major one it may prove to be. Xherdan Shaqiri is on in his place for Liverpool.

  • Lastly, Aston Villa make a swap themselves, replacing Chrisene with Brad Young. They're only one goal down; could they keep their hopes alive here?

  • GOAL! SADIO MANE BAGS A BRACE FOR LIVERPOOL! 3-1! It is as if the floodgates have opened for the Reds, as the striker nudges a second header - this one a looping finish that almost skims the underside of the bar - beyond Onodi's outstretched gloves. That should be the visitors home and dry.

  • GOAL! MOHAMED SALAH GETS IN ON THE ACTION FOR LIVERPOOL! 4-1! It's fast becoming a Reds rout here, the one that was expected in the build-up to this game. The striker meets a well-slotted delivery, works the space inside the box and tucks a fast, low finish past Onodi into the bottom-right corner.
