Conor Hourihane’s opener and Jonathan Kodjia’s brace sandwiched an unfortunate own goal from Morgan Boyes in the first half, before Villa substitute Wesley added a fifth goal on the final whistle.
With Jurgen Klopp and the first-team squad out in Qatar to compete in the FIFA Club World Cup, U-23s boss Neil Critchley took charge for the game and fielded Liverpool’s youngest ever starting XI, with an average age of 19 years and 183 days.
