Liverpool fan kisses Divock Origi during Aston Villa rout

Love was in the air today at Villa Park - at least amongst the Liverpool players and their supporters.

Jurgen Klopp's men smashed six past a beleaguered Aston Villa side, and it all got a bit too much for one fan in particular.

Divock Origi scored just 37 seconds after coming on as a second half substitute for Daniel Sturridge, who had opened the scoring, and the Belgian forward set off to celebrate with the travelling Liverpool fans.

The former Lille man was understandably greeted enthusiastically, but one supporter decided to grab Origi and started smothering him with kisses. No really. You can check out the video below (if you really want to).

As you would expect, Twitter users didn't pass up the chance to mock the jubilant Liverpool fan, who for now at least remains anonymous.

It was a good day at the office for Liverpool, who recorded their biggest win under Klopp against a Villa side seemingly doomed for relegation.

Sturridge got a rare start in an injury-ravaged season and bagged his first goal since December, before James Milner doubled Liverpool's lead.

Emre Can made it 3-0 with just under an hour gone and then both Origi and Nathaniel Clyne scored twice in as many minutes. Kolo Toure's first goal since 2011 completed the rout.

Speaking after the game, Klopp said: "This is not a day for us to sing songs - that's partly out of respect for Aston Villa, a great club having a difficult time."

The Reds will now turn their attention to their Europa League last-32 showdown against German outfit Augsburg.

How many goals can Daniel Sturridge score before the end of the season?
