Coutinho scores 3, Liverpool routs Spartak 7-0 in CL

Coutinho scores 3, Liverpool routs Spartak 7-0 in CL

Klopp's side started quickly and were 3-0 up by half time, then not letting up and scoring a further four goals in the second period to send Spartak Moscow back to Russian Federation on the end of a 7-0 hiding.

15 minutes into the game, Coutinho doubled the lead after a attractive play between Sadio Mane, Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Liverpool were at their free-flowing best as they saw off Spartak Moscow at Anfield to claim top spot in Group E.

Mane scored a thumping scissor volley seconds after half-time and Coutinho followed it by completing his hat-trick with a deflected shot.

Liverpool handed out another huge defeat as they fired their way into the Champions League group stage.

Only four minutes after the kick-off whistle, Mohamed Salah won Liverpool a penalty which Phillipe Coutinho managed to convert to give The Reds an early lead.

It puts aside the memory of both Rafa Benitez's final Champions League campaign with the reds of 2009/10 and Brendan Rodgers' dismal effort in 2014-15.

After several underwhelming seasons in Europe's elite competition, the Premier League will be strongly represented in the last 16 with Liverpool joining Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in the knockout phase. The way they cut open Spartak Moscow so effortlessly in the first 20 minutes alone will make a number of their rivals stand up and take notice.

Three minutes later, Liverpool added their third.

Liverpool's prize for winning their group, and reaching the knockout stage for the first time since 2008-09, will be a last-16 tie against either Basel, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Porto, Shakhtar Donetsk or the reigning champions Real Madrid.

Mane pounced on a mistake by Dzhikiya, ran up the right wing and sent in a cross that Spartak defender Serdar Tasci could only block with his chest.

Liverpool have made a formal complaint to Uefa after striker Rhian Brewster was the victim of alleged racial abuse by a Spartak Moscow player during today's game between the clubs.

Liverpool can secure a first place finish in their group with a win tonight.
