Trent Alexander-Arnold was the main talking point from an England point of view at Anfield on Saturday, the 22-year-old having been left out of Gareth Southgate's most recent international squad.
Southagte was in attendance to see the full-back score his second goal of the season as the Reds fought back from a goal down to end a run of poor home results.
Recent international debutant Ollie Watkins had earlier given Villa, once again without Jack Grealish, the lead.
Elsewhere in the Premier League over the weekend, Jesse Lingard continued his stunning revival in form and fortune with two goals in a crucial win for West Ham United against fellow Champions League contenders Leicester City.
For the Foxes, James Maddison sat out the match after a breah of Covid-19 protocols.
There was a goal for Mason Greenwood in Manchester United's win at Tottenham with Dean Henderson again starting in goal for the visitors, ahead of David de Gea, and another impressive display from Mason Mount as Chelsea eased past Crystal Palace.
