I mean ... three of Villa's goals were fairly flukey but it would still have been a horrible showing if all the deflected shots dribbled wide. That's as disorganized in the back as I can remember Liverpool looking since the early, early days of Klopp when they really didn't understand how to do the counter-press in a controlled manner. Villa are sharp right now, but not that freaking sharp.Liverpool laid a LARGE egg today, losing 7-2 to Aston Villa. Can’t just walk into these games thinking they’ll be handed the 3 point, sometimes they have to work for it.
Oh, and by the by, it looks like Villa do intend to go with the 4-2-3-1 against better teams with Ross Barkley in the pivot. That role really suits him and it's been years since somebody used him in that far forward a position.
