Champions Liverpool were thrashed 7-2 by Dean Smith’s Aston Villa side on a day of shocking results in the Premier League.
Jürgen Klopp’s charges came under sustained attack at Villa Park on Sunday as new signing Ollie Watkins grabbed a hat-trick and the match ball.
Hi @MerseyPolice – the neighbours have let 7 in. How do I report please?

The home team’s scoring began following an error from stand-in goalkeeper Adrián, leading the manager to comment:
Tonight, pretty much everybody made massive mistakes around the goals.
The first one was obviously Adrian; that was a big mistake, yes, but the reaction on the goal was an even bigger mistake, how we reacted.
These were the best tweets and jokes as Aston Villa beat Liverpool 7-2:
Liverpool breaking Covid rules letting 7 in.

All this shit about "tactics" and it turns out it's the visceral fear of supporters pouring onto the pitch and beating them up that makes footballers play with defensive solidity.

Boris Johnson reimposed social distancing measures across the country as a second wave of coronavirus hit, but it was Aston Villa who broke the rule of 6 against defending champions Liverpool. pic.twitter.com/OqRhdJsh1T
