Liverpool had the better of proceedings in the early stages despite being unable to create much in the way of a goalscoring opportunity.

But the Reds looked sharp going forward and a well-worked move led to driving inside the box, with the Reds youngster seeing his curling effort parried by goalkeeper Diogo Costa onto his teammate's legs before Mohamed Salah prodded the ball into the back of the net to make it 1-0.

Liverpool dominated the rhythm of the game, with the hosts largely unable to get out of their own half, although the Reds should have done better to make more of their superiority and find a second goal.

Liverpool looked in no mood to stop there and they found a fifth goal just six minutes later as Jones' shot from outside the box was deflected into the path of Firmino, who accepted his second of the game after coming on from the bench with a calm finish past Costa.
