Aston Villa 1 Liverpool 3
A Friday night encounter on a frosty pitch. The game was televised and Ian Rush bagged a hat-trick.
Aston Villa took the lead in the match but straight after the half time interval the Reds were back in it as Rush struck home with Dorigo trailing him.
The second goal for Rush was a classic goal. A cross from the right hand side was headed on by Nicol and Rush curled a volley around Nigel spink in the Villa net to leave everyone stunned.
The hat-trick goal cam thanks to a cheeky chip from Rush which went just over Spink and droped in to the back of the net.
