Premier League champions maintain 100 per cent home record

Sadio Mane and Curtis Jones scored the goals as Liverpool maintained their 100 per cent record at home this season by beating Aston Villa 2-0.

The champions initially struggled to shake off the disappointment of the loss to Manchester City last time out as relegation-threaten Villa performed admirably.

Mane broke the deadlock just after the second-half drinks break, while teenage midfielder Jones clinched the win with his first league goal with a minute left.
