WATCH FULL HIGHLIGHTS: ASTON VILLA 1-2 LIVERPOOL GOALS AND HIGHLIGHTS OF MATCH
Liverpool kept their hopes of the Premier League and a potential quadruple alive as goals from Joel Matip and Sadio Mane ensured they took maximum points off Aston Villa the 2-1 win.
The host took the lead early as the third minute with Douglas Luiz opening the scoring on what was his 100th Premier League appearance for the claret.
The Reds were quick to respond through unlikely scorer Matip. Villa failed to clear their lines from a Liverpool attack just three minutes later and after Virgil van Dijk’s effort was saved, his centre-back partner was on hand to tap home from close range.
Both sides wasted easy chances throughout and with Mohamed Salah benched, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota and Mane were left trying to find another breakthrough.
However, Sadio Mane combined with Diaz in the second half to score his 15th Premier League goal of the season, the Senegalese heading home from six yards after his team-mate’s inch-perfect cross.
The win for Liverpool see them sit level on points with Manchester City at the top of the table, but City have a higher goal difference and with just two games left to play, a win for Pep Guardiola’s team in their remaining three matches will see them retain the Premier League crown.
A vital three points for the Reds keeps the pressure on City, although as Klopp now turns his attention to Saturday’s FA Cup final with Chelsea.
