Liverpool 3-0 Aston Villa

Anfield Road (Liverpool), Monday December 6th

Aston Villa's defeat drops them closer to relegation.

Liverpool defeated Aston Villa 3-0 at Anfield Road on Monday. The win returns Liverpool to the top ten/

Liverpool easily won the match - even though they were missing their star players Gerrard, Carragher and Torres. Torres missed the match to attend the birth of his child.

Ngog scored in the 14th minute, followed by Babel in 16th minute. Maxi added the third in the 55th minute.

Manager Gerard Houllier’s return to Anfield was not what he had hoped for.

Houllier has given Jonathan Hogg a three-year contract to develop at Villa. Hogg, who just turned 22, has made five starts for Villa this season after being given his debut in the Europea League draw at Rapid Vienna in August.
