Firmino rallied the Liverpool supporters back after volleying Mo Salah’s cross into the net.

A spectacular strike leveled the game at 1–1 after Jacob Ramsey had earlier dismissed Villa.

Ramsey buried a low volley after Douglas Luiz’s cross in the 27th minute of Saturday’s game.

Villa squandered a golden chance to take the lead early when Ollie Watkins missed the target from the penalty spot.

Liverpool thought they had equalized in the 10th minute of the second half, but video review (VAR) resulted in Cody Gakpo being ruled offside and his goal disallowed.

Saturday’s result ended Liverpool’s seven-match winning streak.
