Even if the result wasn't what we'd been hoping for, we got a bevy of great photographs from Aston Villa's 0-1 loss to Liverpool on Saturday. I can never get over what a perfect venue for a football match Villa Park seems to be. Everything is very picturesque. There's some great atmosphere shots here, and then some really superb actions photos.
As always, make sure you check out the Monday edition of Kickin' It, where we've introduced the corresponding fixtures table. It'll give you some hope to know that, despite the two losses in a row, Aston Villa are already doing better in these three matches than they did last season. It's not much, but it's certainly improvement! And check back later today when we'll have gifs of the match, including Daniel Sturridge's goal and Gabby Agbonlahor's close chance in the second half. Oh, and a Paul Lambert dance.
