Aston Villa 0-1 Liverpool – Premier League – 24th August 2013

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Aston Villa v Liverpool - Villa Park

Daniel Sturridge was the goal-hero for Liverpool again as the Reds made it two wins out of two in the Premier League.

The former Chelsea man netted on 21 minutes, finishing off a superb team move as the visitors dominated, with Steven Gerrard, Lucas Leiva and Philippe Coutinho shining in midfield.

After the break, the Villans improved but couldn’t find a way past Simon Mignolet despite the best efforts of the in-form Christian Benteke and ultimately Paul Lambert’s side would make it just one win in three, albeit after an extremely difficult opening to their new campaign.

    Yeah, it was an awesome goal from Sturridge.

    To be honest I thought he had taken it too far, but that flick at the end was sublime.

    It wasn’t until I seen the replays that I saw how intricate his footwork actually was in the buildup to the execution.

    At this rate, Liverpool may not even need their rabbit.

    Looks like Daniel is a much more solid & reliable striker.

    ^I agree mate.

    When he got past Guzan, my first thought was: “SHIT! It’s on his right foot!” And then THAT finish..WOW! Composure, confidence and class.

    Now, I’m worried how Sturridge will be affected by the return of the Biting One. Maybe we should have flogged him off to RM the moment he opened his big mouth in early June.
