Late goals from Andy Robertson and Sadio Mane earned Liverpool an incredibly dramatic 2-1 victory at Aston Villa.
It looked like it wasn’t the Reds’ day after Trezeguet opened the scoring and Roberto Firmino’s strike was ruled out for an exceptionally marginal offside call.
But Liverpool did eventually get through the Villans’ resolute defense when Robertson headed Mane’s brilliant cross from the right beyond Tom Heaton.
A point looked on the cards but in the fourth minute of stoppage-time, Mane got on the end of Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner and expertly guided his header into the corner of the net to send the traveling Kopites wild.
