The Reds notched their fifth goal in the 54th minute as Firmino glanced Coutinho's free-kick into the bottom corner. Coutinho swung his delivery to the near post and the forward nodded the ball backwards towards the opposite post, and he watched as it nestled into the back of the net.

Oxlade-Chamberlain scored his first goal for Liverpool from Sturridge's pass in the 86th minute of the game, slotting his strike past Handanovic from close range. That strike wrapped up an excellent performance from the visitors this evening.

The Reds added a seventh goal for the evening when Alexander-Arnold was afforded space and time on the edge of the box.
