Liverpool F.C. got its title-winning celebrations of Premier League back on winning track with a 2-0 win over Aston Villa F.C., just some days after being on the receiving end of a record-equating defeat. Several suggested that the manager of Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp’s side was suffering from something of a hangover during the 2nd July’s 4-10 demolition against Manchester City – the joint-weightiest defeat by a team already topped Premier League Champion – nevertheless, Liverpool recovered in time to put exile-threatened Aston Villa to the sword.

It was not effortless on Sunday at Anfield as Villa wasted many good chances to take the lead, before winger for Liverpool, Sadio Mane finally broke the deadlock after seventy-one minutes. Villa received many other chances to level the scores, but Curtis Jones obsessed the victory in the final moments with his first goal of the Premier League. It ended a fantasized weekend for the nineteen-year-old Jones, who signed a new 5-year contract with his boyhood club on Saturday.
Liverpool top-flight title
Some analysts questioned the desire of Liverpool to go out and win after securing the first top-flight title for the club in thirty years. Those reservations answered surely with a fighting performance against Aston Villa. The victory maintained a perfect home record of Liverpool in the Premier League this season, with seventeen wins from seventeen matches, and also keeps the club on a path for the record Premier League total points.
Centurions of 2017/2018 have the current record after becoming the first club team to reach the hundred-point mark. If the club conquests all its remaining five matches, Liverpool will set a new best-ever score of 104 points.
