Liverpool re-established a five-point lead at the Premier League summit with a commanding 4-1 victory over Chelsea at Anfield on Wednesday night.
Diogo Jota punctuated a dominant early spell for the Reds when he bounded into the box and stroked in a finish midway through the first half.
Conor Bradley rasped in his first senior goal for the club just before an interval that arrived soon after Darwin Nunez had sent a penalty against the post.
Jurgen Klopp’s side maintained their control in the second half and increased their advantage when Dominik Szoboszlai nodded in Bradley’s Kop-end cross in the 65th minute.
Christopher Nkunku soon made a mark on the scoresheet for the visitors, but it proved mere consolation as Luis Diaz restored Liverpool’s merited cushion late on.
Klopp made four changes to his starting XI, including Alexis Mac Allister and Szoboszlai back in midfield. Trent Alexander-Arnold reached the milestone of 300 appearances for the club by coming on during the second half.
