Laboured Liverpool lose to Villa
Liverpool suffered their second defeat of their opening three Premier League games of the season by losing 3-1 to Aston Villa at Anfield.
Brazilian midfielder Lucas gave the visitors a surprise lead on 33 minutes when he guided Young's free-kick past the wrong-footed Pepe Reina into his own net.
Things got worse for Liverpool when - as manager Rafael Benitez was complaining to the fourth official about the length of added time at the end of the half - defender Davies glanced Nicky Shorey's corner past Reina.
Torres lashed Emiliano Insua's cross into the roof of the net on 71 minutes, but that fillip for the home crowd did not last long before Gerrard slid in and upended Nigel Reo-Coker inside the Liverpool box with a desperate lunge.
