ON THIS DAY

Martin O'Neill's Villa build on their unlucky and narrow defeat to Arsenal with a second draw in three games, this coming against 4th placed Liverpool - with Lee Mason - a referee who would pain Villa continually over the following two decades - making his presence known as he denies Villa a nailed on spot kick.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIt was more of a chess game, Iโ€™ve seen the incident it, it looked a penalty, but the ref hasnโ€™t given it so we move on. โ€œWe can play much better than that and the responsibility is on us at home to do just that. โ€œThere might have been a bit of anxiety left over from the Arsenal game in midweek where we played well and got nothing.โ€ Martin Oโ€™Neill.
