[ad#m1] Villa Park | 31 Mar 13
Liverpool got the better of the second half as they scored two goals in 13 minutes to win the match 1-2 against a relegation threatened Aston Villa.
First half, was an entirely different story as Liverpool players looked disinterested and Benteke took full advantage of that. His presence in the Liverpool box made life very uncomfortable for the likes of Carragher and Lucas. The Belgian evenutally scored in the 31st minute with a fine strike, assisted by Agbonlahor.
Liverpool remained unchanged in the second half but started passing in a much more fruitful manner, 2 minutes into the second half and a gorgeous through pass from Coutinho found Jordan Henderson who shot emphatically inside the goal. Steven Gerrard then scored his 10th goal of the season as he converted a penalty. Gerrard also made a tremendous goal line save after his goal.
