David James defends Villa star on Twitter, Luis Garcia jokes about Liverpool

Aston Villa lost 6-0 to Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.

Luis Garcia was delighted with Liverpool's perfect Valentine's couple on Sunday afternoon.

Indeed, after the Reds thrashed Aston Villa 6-0, the former Liverpool man joked about Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho after a phenomenal attacking performance - although one made far easier by a poor Villa side...

Liverpool enjoyed six different goalscorers for the first ever time in a Premier League match and Garcia tweeted:

Meanwhile, former Aston Villa and Liverpool goalkeeper David James defended Brad Guzan.

It might be difficult to imagine defending any Villa player but James suggested the American has taken flack thanks to a poor back four being in front of him.

Aston Villa seem dead and buried yet their players obviously aren't even going to try and fight relegation.

But, for Liverpool, things look exciting. The timing of their big win (and players returning from injury) couldn't be better with the Capital One Cup final so soon on the horizon.
