Reds striker Daniel Sturridge opened the scoring at Villa Park, before James Milner’s free-kick crept in to make it 2-0.
Emre Can fired in, Divock Origi slotted home and Nathaniel Clyne bundled in to add to the lead, before Kolo Toure headed in a sixth to add further gloss to the scoreline and heap misery on Villa in front of their home fans.
The result left Liverpool eighth in the Premier League table heading into the final 12 games of the season.
