By Vanessa Ekpereka (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Trent Alexander-Arnold’s injury-time winner gave Liverpool a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa, ending a record run of defeats at Anfield on Saturday.
The English champions had lost their previous six games at Anfield and fell behind again when Alisson Becker failed to keep out Ollie Watkins’s first-half strike.
Despite being controversially denied an equaliser as a dubious VAR review ruled out Roberto Firmino’s reply, Mohamed Salah levelled before Alexander-Arnold responded in style to the criticism he has received of late.
“It felt massive to win. A real relief,” said Klopp after victory briefly took Liverpool up to fourth in the Premier League.
“I can’t remember the last time we did it easy but it’s fine in our situation after losing six home games.”
