Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah both scored twice while Philippe Coutinho made it four goals in as many away games as the Reds ran riot.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Trent Alexander-Arnold then scored in the latter stages as Klopp’s side rather romped away with a 7-0 win.

Milner was back in the midfield after a couple of games out injured and was instrumental, so much so that some fans were comparing him to a certain Barcelona legend.
