Gabby silences the Kop

Gabby silences the Kop

On this day in 2014, a Gabby Agbonlahor goal secured a 1-0 victory over Liverpool at Anfield and gave Villa 10 points from their opening four Premier League games.

Villa had opened the season with a 1-0 win at Stoke, a goalless home draw with Newcastle United and a 2-1 success over Hull City, and although Liverpool dominated, enjoying 75 per cent possession, Agbonlahor made the game’s most telling contribution.

Captain for the day in the absence of Ron Vlaar, the striker stabbed home range after Philippe Senderos met Ashley Westwood’s ninth-minute corner with a header which was blocked in a crowded goalmouth.
