Peter Crouch rescued a Barclays Premier League point for Liverpool with a late goal at Anfield earning a 2-2 draw against his former club Aston Villa.

Crouch hooked in right footed from 10 yards in the the 88th minute to avert a disastrous result for under-fire manager Rafael Benitez.

Yossi Benayoun gave the Reds a 19th-minute lead but Marlon Harewood (69) and a Fabio Aurelio own goal (72) threatened to win it for Villa.
