Reds rout Villa at Anfield

10:57 am on 7 December 2010

Liverpool have beaten Aston Villa 3-0 in their Premier League football match at Anfield.

David Ngog opened the scoring with a header before Ryan Babel added another before half-time from a suspiciously offside-looking position.

Maxi Rodriguez then finished things off in the second half to move Liverpool up to eighth on the ladder.

Villa remain 16th, two points above the relegation zone.

It's goalkeeper Pepe Reina's 100th clean sheet for the Reds, a new club record for the fastest century of shutouts.
