Liverpool suffered a 7-2 defeat against Aston Villa in the Premier League.

An Ollie Watkins hat-trick was supplemented by John McGinn’s deflected effort as the opening 45 minutes ended with Mohamed Salah’s clinical finish as the visitors’ only credit.

Ross Barkley benefited from another deflection to extend the lead early in the second half, only for Salah to claim his second courtesy of a sweet strike soon after.

But a subsequent Jack Grealish double compounded a sobering evening for Jürgen Klopp’s men, whose 100 per cent start to the campaign came to a sudden halt.
