The referee blows his whistle for full-time. Liverpool have won 1-0 with Torres' late strike securing the three points. A draw would probably have been a fair result but the Reds won't be complaining.
Liverpool make a change after Torres' goal with Fabio Aurelio taking the place of Benayoun.
GOAL TORRES! Late drama as Kuyt takes control of a poor pass from Warnock on the right flank. The ball eventually falls to Torres inside the Villa box and he slides a low shot into the bottom far corner of Friedel's goal. Liverpool lead 1-0.
Liverpool make their expected change with Skrtel replacing Johnson.
Villa make their second change with Steve Sidwell taking the place of Downing.
Liverpool make their expected change with Aquilani replaced by Babel.
Villa make their first change of the match with Marc Albrighton taking the place of Reo-Coker.
Harsh words from Keith as he hopes the robin will replace Lucas. It hasn't been the Liverpool midfielder's most unimpressive half of football and he has looked decent in possession.
Paddy in San Francisco thinks Liverpool's problems in defence will cost them with Dunne scoring the winner from a set-piece. Let me know if you agree at email@example.com.
Joanna in the USA wants an update on the robin who was on the pitch at the start of the game. No official word but I can only presume he flew away. Possibly to watch Bristol City, Swindon or Cheltenham.
Villa are now 23/10 to win this match with Sky Bet, Liverpool are 17/10 and you can back the draw at 13/10.
