Well, well well. That was a nice turn up for the books mugging the scousers in their own back yard. I think it’s fair to say we are fast becoming Liverpool’s bogey team at Anfield.
Like most fans I feared the worst in this game especially without Vlaar and Benteke. But great credit to Baker (motm) and Sendeross who were magnificent tonight. Yes they were without 2 star names but so were we and they still replaced them with nearly £50m worth of talent.
Even though they had the majority of possession we always looked comfortable and to be fair there was only a couple of times they looked like scoring. The first 20 mins was superb as we took the game to them and you can tell they were very wary of us. After we scored we went back to type and sat back. Ok we got away with it today so no complaints but this cannot continue as better more creative teams will punish us. I thought those days were over tbh.
Having more experience in the team helped us see this game through and Hutton and Sendross bullying Sterling and Balottelli respectively was pure gamesmanship and great to watch. It was a great team performance and the whole team was greater than its sum parts.
On another note having a bearded Irishman and Scotsman must have put the fear of god into our players long may it continue.
Well done Villa great performance and great result. 🙂
