Video: Watkins punishes Liverpool defenders Trent and Joe Gomez to make it 2-0 to Aston Villa

In the 21st minute of Aston Villa’s clash against Liverpool, Jack Grealish played Ollie Watkins in behind with a pinpoint through ball.

Grealish’s ball punished Trent Alexander-Arnold for being out of position as Watkins burst behind the right-back.

Joe Gomez shifted over to cover but he was no match for Watkins as the forward beat the centre-back with some fine dribbling, creating enough space to fire a shot into the back of the net.
