Gerrard stunner earns Liverpool win

Published Add your comment

Steven Gerrard´s superb free-kick enabled Liverpool to win on the opening day of the Premier League campaign for the first time during the Rafael Benitez era as they ran out 2-1 victors over Aston Villa.

Villa looked to have rescued a point when skipper Gareth Barry cancelled out Martin Laursen´s first-half own goal with an 85th-minute penalty.

But then Gerrard curled a superb free-kick past the dive of Stuart Taylor barely 60 seconds later after he had been brought down by Stiliyan Petrov.
