BIRMINGHAM, England(AP) Liverpool scored twice in the first 15 minutes Sunday for a 2-0 win at Aston Villa, which has now failed to score in four of its last five Premier League matches.
Both Liverpool's goals came from set pieces.
Craig Bellamy put Liverpool ahead in the 11th after Villa failed to clear a corner kick, poking in from close range after the ball had hit goalkeeper Brad Guzan.
Bellamy then took a powerfully struck corner from the left, sending the ball onto Martin Skrtel's head for the unmarked defender to score.
Liverpool now has 29 points from 16 games, 10 more than mid-table Villa.
