Premier League Liverpool stage comeback to put four past Luton Town

Liverpool produced a rousing second-half fightback to beat Luton Town 4-1 in the Premier League at Anfield on Wednesday.

Goals from Virgil van Dijk, Cody Gakpo, Luis Diaz and Harvey Elliott consolidated the Reds’ position at the top of the division, as they emphatically recovered from going behind to Chiedozie Ogbene’s 12th-minute strike.

The Reds made five changes from the team that had started the win at Brentford last Saturday. In came Jarell Quansah and Joe Gomez in defence, Ryan Gravenberch in midfield, and Elliott and Gakpo in attack.

Elliott was making his 100th Liverpool appearance, and there was a place on the bench for 18-year-old Jayden Danns, who was named in a senior matchday squad for the first time.

Liverpool were fast out of the blocks, forcing a pair of corners inside the opening minute and seeing two early chances fall to Diaz. For the first, the Colombian was unable to get his shot away after being sent clear, but he was unlucky with the second, curling a left-footed attempt just wide from Elliott’s superb pass.

Gakpo sent an acrobatic effort on target while at the other end Alfie Doughty dragged a shot wide from Tahith Chong’s pass.
