Ollie Watkins Scores Sensational First Half Hat-Trick As Aston Villa Go 4-1 Up Against Liverpool

Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins has scored a first half hat-trick against Premier League champions Liverpool in a sensational display.

Dean Smith's side have gone in at the break 4-1 ahead and it is all thanks to summer signing Watkins.

The former Brentford man opened the scoring inside four minutes after a mistake from Adrian allowed him to tap home.

Watkins then doubled his side's lead in the 22nd minute with a ferocious left-footed strike that flew into the top corner.

Liverpool fired back with a Mohamed Salah strike before John McGinn restored Villa's two goal advantage.

24-year-old Watkins then sealed his hat-trick with a flying header in the 39th minute.

Fans have reacted to Watkins' performance and they think he's already repaid his £28 million fee.
