Liverpool made a winning start to their 2020-21 FA Cup campaign with a 4-1 defeat of a youthful Aston Villa team.

Sadio Mane and Louie Barry traded goals during the first half at Villa Park, where the hosts fielded a side composed of U23s and U18s players due to a COVID-19 outbreak among the first team.

The Reds ensured their place in the next stage with a more clinical second period as Georginio Wijnaldum, Mane and Mohamed Salah each netted during a decisive five-minute spell.
