Liverpool got the rout underway in the third minute after Mane set up Minamino to slot into the bottom corner.

Mane then got on the score sheet himself in the 35th minute with a neat turn and finish.

A minute before the break, Firmino poked in the third goal following a brisk Reds counter-attack.

Skipper Jordan Henderson curled the fourth goal into the top corner after 52 minutes.

Firmino notched his second with a dink over keeper Vicente Guaita on 68 minutes for 5-0.
