General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +3 Villa thwart another lacklustre Liverpool attack, with Guzan collecting an over-hit pass. The Villans have secured a huge three points today.
90' +2 C. N'Zogbia enters the game and replaces A. Weimann.
90' +1 There will be three minutes of added time...
90' L. Suárez gets yellow.
Liverpool are appealing for yet another penalty. Suarez's deflected shot appears to hit the arm of Clark, but the referee dismisses it. Suarez is furious, and talks himself into the book.
88' C. Benteke gets yellow.
Johnson and Benteke tussle, before the latter squares up to the English full-back. He receives a yellow card.
87' S. Gerrard has scored a goal for Liverpool! Assist by G. Johnson.
GOAL! It's little more than a consolation for Liverpool, but they've grabbed a goal. Johnson drives forward, jinking towards goal before firing a shot towards the far post which Gerrard flicks on and past Guzan. Three minutes plus stoppage time to find two more goals...
86' K. El Ahmadi enters the game and replaces B. Bannan.
Here's David Lynch again: "Liverpool look well and truly out of ideas here. Rodgers' tactical gymnastics earned them a brilliant three points against West Ham last weekend but they simply look like a team short of top-class attackers today - which is exactly what they are."
84' Cole feeds Johnson, who plays a cute back-heel for Suarez, but the Urugauyan's shot is blocked by Baker. Cole heads over from the resulting corner.
82' Downing crosses into the box and, unusually, there's no Villa defender there to clear the ball. Agger meets the cross and tries to fire a shot at goal on the turn, but the ball bounces off his standing leg and out for a goal-kick.
80' Benteke does brilliantly again, holding up the ball and feeding team-mates. His pass sets up Bannan, who tries to float a shot towards the far post, but Weimann attack the Scot's effort and nudges a header just wide of the near post.
