Liverpool 1-3 Aston Villa
A young and hungry Villa turned up at Anfield to dominate the hosts from the off with a performance that lauded the impact of Paul Lambert since his arrival in the summer. Christian Benteke spearheaded the attack and was the star performer, playing his part in all the visitors’ goals. He found the net twice in addition to a sublime backheeled assist for Andi Weimann. Benteke was unplayable as he bullied Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger with his strength and pace, tormenting them with flashes of brilliance. The Belgian’s performance was reminiscent of Didier Drogba and Lambert’s decision to demote Darren Bent seems to be bearing fruit.
