Liverpool was afraid in the Premier League. The Reds avoided giving Manchester City a royal road by winning 1-2 on the grass of Aston Villa on Tuesday, putting them in a final sprint for the coronation with a three-point handicap.



The Villains, on the other hand, had started the score and were not making it easy for Jürgen

Klopp’s team. These are a return to the heyday of the city.

The Reds are not giving up on winning the championship. On Tuesday, Liverpool players

headed to Aston Villa’s lawn to win in the late match of the Premier League’s 33rd day (1-2).

They thus regained their lead over Manchester City, who play Wolverhampton on

Wednesday (86 points and +68 versus +65 for the Citizens). Jürgen Klopp’s men were early

ahead after a goal by Douglas Luiz (3rd), but Jol Matip (6th) immediately equalized before

Sadio Mané gave them a clear edge (65th). They exert pressure on their rivals.

In this match, the Villans of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard exhibited no docility, contrary

to what some onlookers predicted. They pushed back visitors who put their foot on the ball

but, more importantly, lacked bearings with a revised starting lineup from the first seconds.

Konstantinos Tsimikas, an unusual left-back, was hurt, as was Trent Alexander-Arnold on the

other side. Following a cross from Lucas Digne, Ollie Watkins fell on Alisson (3rd), but

Douglas Luiz tricked the goalie in stride (1-0, 3rd).


With Liverpool’s fast equalization through Matip in the six meters after a massive mess and

undoubtedly several unwhistled mistakes, the opinions are still heated (1-1, 6th). The ball

continued to travel at full speed from one surface to the next, and Digne, like Mané on the

opposite side, missed the target (12th) (13th). The Senegalese also had a good header on a

Tsimikas cross, but the ball wound up on the left side of the goal (19th). Liverpool were also

enraged when Alisson failed to discipline Watkins, who was caught off guard (21st). Fabinho,

who was having trouble in the game, even got hurt (30th).

In an uncontrolled first phase, the two sides went at it head to head, with Philippe Coutinho,

another former Red, displaying his technical abilities before finishing poorly (33rd), while

Naby Keta missed the boat by six meters (34th). Curtis Jones, who gained momentum but

took off his attempt a little too much (45th + 1), helped Liverpool progressively gain the

upper hand in midfield.


Certainly, Things did not improve after the break, with a free kick from Alexander-Arnold flirting with Emiliano Martinez’s net (48th) and Aston Villa’s quick reaction, in which Coutinho fell in the zone of truth after hitting the ball (49th). Thiago Alcantara, who debuted shortly after the hour mark, gave visitors more control. After a recovery in the opposition camp, Luis Diaz wheeled to the left, and Mané took over his cross halfway up with a little uncrossed header (1-2, 65th). This season, he has 15 league goals.
