It had looked like Darwin Nunez had doubled Liverpool’s lead around the 20-minute mark on an initial view, though the effort has since been given as an own goal against Matty Cash.
The Uruguayan international fired a powerful effort from close-range that struck the post before rebounding into the path of the Aston Villa defender.
A highly unfortunate moment for the visitors though one that’s entirely deserved on the balance of play.
