In a not-so-common occurrence for Liverpool, goals were found from the striker position as starter Fabio Borini and substitute Ricky Lambert provided the scoring in the Reds 0-2 win over Aston Villa.
Today's result should confirm beyond a shadow of a doubt that the purchase of Mario Balotelli was a gigantic and expensive mistake. Even without Steven Gerrard, Liverpool were able to display a competent attacking form against a Villa side who can shut you down on their day. Borini opened the scoring when he volleyed home a nifty Jordan Henderson cross as the latter scooped the ball over the Villa defense and Borini was able to stay onside. Brendan Rodgers then made a like-for-like substitution and flipped Borini for Lambert. The veteran received a Raheem Sterling pass out right on a counter-attack and slotted it into the far corner of net to seal the points in the 79th minute. With Daniel Sturridge due back in the near future and Pool showing better defending in the past couple months, fantasy investment across the squad is trending upward. Jan 17 - 12:22 PM
