Striker Divock Origi added a third for the Reds in the 66th minute after cutting inside from the left.
Liverpool centre half Virgil van Dijk scored a header from a Trent Alexander-Arnold free-kick to make it 4-0. Van Dijk scored his second and the hosts’ fifth moments later, this time from an Andy Robertson cross
