Liverpool won a five-goal thriller at Anfield after beating Aston Villa 3-2 this afternoon to ease the pressure on Brendan Rodgers’ shoulders.

The Reds got off to the perfect start when James Milner fired home from the edge of the area inside the opening two minutes to give the hosts the lead.

Daniel Sturridge then doubled Liverpool’s lead shortly after half-time with a stunning volley before Rudy Gestede pulled one back for Villa with a far post tap in.

The Merseysiders restored their two-goal advantage just seconds later when Sturridge grabbed his second of the game with a neat finish in the 66th minute.

Villa managed to make it a tense final 20 minutes after Gestede headed home for 3-2 but Liverpool held on to secure a vital three points which moves them up to seventh in the Premier League table.
