Video Highlights: Liverpool 1-1 Aston Villa

A tap-in from Luis Suarez earned Liverpool a 1-1 draw at home to Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon.

The visitors led from the 10th minute thanks to a Chris Herd strike, but our No.7 secured a point with a poacher's goal eight minutes from time.

The Reds were denied by the post several times and felt aggrieved at not being awarded penalties on three occasions - one of which looked a certain foul.

The game was preceded by a minute of silence in memory of the 96 supporters who died at Hillsborough 23 years ago next weekend.

Proceedings then commenced and there was an unfamiliar face on show for the hosts - that of Brazilian goalkeeper Alexander Doni, deputising for the suspended Pepe Reina to become the 14th regular stopper to play for Liverpool in the Premier League.

Elsewhere, Jonjo Shelvey retained his place in midfield, while Dirk Kuyt partnered Suarez up top.

And it was Kuyt who was first to make either goalkeeper work, finding himself denied by Shay Given - who saved onto the post - from a tight angle after Stewart Downing beat a man and crossed.

Instead it was Villa who took the lead on 10 minutes when a Stephen Warnock centre was palmed away by Doni into the path of Barry Bannan. He cut the ball into the stride of the unmarked Herd, who guided into the top corner at the Kop end.
