Aston Villa stuns Liverpool with 3-1 win

Aston Villa brought Liverpool's recent resurgence in the Premier League to a crashing end by winning 3-1 at Anfield Saturday, lifting the visitors away from the relegation zone.

Belgium international Christian Benteke was Villa's star performer, scoring in each half and setting up fellow striker Andreas Weimann with an outrageous backheel for the other goal that made it 2-0 at halftime.

Steven Gerrard grabbed a late consolation for Liverpool but the result made a mockery of manager Brendan Rodgers' pre-match assertion that his team could challenge for a top-two spot this season.

Liverpool, which had been looking for a third straight win for the first time in two seasons, stayed in mid-table _ four points above Villa.
