Liverpool's skipper, Steven Gerrard scored the winner
Aston Villa were left in deep relegation trouble after Liverpool fought back from a goal down to seal victory at Villa Park.
Paul Lambert's side took the lead when Gabriel Agbonlahor's lay-off found Christian Benteke, who powered home.
Liverpool equalised shortly after the restart when Jordan Henderson dinked the ball past the reach of Brad Guzan, reports the BBC.
And Steven Gerrard scored the winner from the spot after Nathan Baker brought down Luis Suarez in the area.
