Liverpool came up with an emphatic response after being knocked out of the FA Cup by West Ham midweek. Jurgen Klopp saw his team put 6 pass a miserable Aston Villa side, who are certain to go down this season.

Apart from the goals, perhaps the most pleasing part about this result was Liverpool keeping a clean sheet for once. This was Liverpool’s first clean sheet of the year 2016 after 7 games.
Liverpool needed a performance of this sort after Klopp winning only 6 top flight games since taking over at Anfield. The result was sweetened with retunr to starting XI for Daniel Sturridge and Phillipe Coutinho.
Apart from their return, they were two of the most outstanding players on the night. Brazilian playmaker had 100% take-ons, 37 passes completed, 3 tackles won, and 2 assists in the game and indeed a standout choice for our Man of the match from Liverpool’s 6-0 win over Aston Villa.
