  • VILLA LEAD! After Digne drifts a cross from the left towards the penalty spot, Douglas Luiz rises highest to plant a header straight at Alisson in a central position. The ball rebounds back into the Brazilian's path, and he proceeds to thump the ball into an unguarded net! Liverpool's title hopes take another blow, as Villa go 1-0 ahead!

  • LIVERPOOL STRIKE BACK! Mings and Nakamba both make a hash of clearing a free-kick into the Villa box, and after the ball bobbles around dangerously, Jota pokes the ball into the path of Van Dijk. The Dutch defender's shot is part-blocked by Martinez, but Matip is on hand to prod it home from close range. Liverpool are back on level terms already: 1-1!
