  • GOOOALLL! Villa lead 1-0, Watkins scores his first Premier League goal after a horrible mistake from Adrian! He takes an age to control a pass from Robertson then sells Gomez dreadfully short. Grealish picks up the loose ball and squares it for Watkins to sidefoot home.

  • GOOOALLLL! It's 2-0, it's Watkins again, and it's an absolute stunner! Grealish threads him in down the left with an excellent pass and the new boy just drives infield, leaving Gomez in his wake before firing a rocket of a shot into the top-right corner. Brilliant.

  • GOOOALL! Moments after Barkley misses, Salah scores and Liverpool have it back to 2-1! Jota brings the ball in from the left, Keita spins in the area to feed it on to Salah, and he thrashes it into the roof of the net. Game on!

  • GOOALLL! It's 3-1, McGinn via a deflection! He hits a low left-footed volley as a corner is cleared to him at the edge of the area, and the ball deflects off the shin of Van Dijk and past a wrong-footed Adrian.

  • GOOALLL! It's FOUR, Watkins with a hat-trick! Wow! Liverpool are absolutely all over the place from a deep free kick. It comes to Trezeguet in acres of space on the left and he puts in a simple cross. Watkins is one of three players who could turn it in for Villa and he heads home with aplomb.

  • GOOOALLL! FIVE! BARKLEY! He's gone close more than once tonight and he gets his reward for some hard work in this game. He hits a left-footed effort from the edge of the area and it deflects again, spinning up off Alexander-Arnold's boot and into the top-right corner.
