has ended his goal drought as Liverpool have beat 3-0 at Anfield in the sixth round of the Premier League.

Liverpool started the game very well and were extremely dominant and they took the lead after only ten minutes after Shaqiri’s cross took a deflection off Hoedt and went into the net.

A few minutes later, Matip doubled the lead for Liverpool through a bullet header, converting Alexander-Arnold’s corner. Liverpool were in complete control as they had more of the ball for themselves.

In the 43rd minute, Salah almost scored a wonder goal but his backheel went just wide. Five minutes later, Salah eventually got his goal after Shaqiri’s free-kick hit the post and the Egyptian tapped it in.

Klopp made a half-time substitution as he brought in Milner for Shaqiri and minutes after the start of the second-half, Van Dijk injured his ribs and had to come off for Joe Gomez.

Chances for Liverpool kept coming but they couldn’t convert their them, with the closest one coming from Robertson’s shot which glided over the post.

Mohamed Salah scored another goal, but it was ruled out for offside, as the Reds managed to seal a deserved 3-0 win.

Liverpool are currently top of the Premier League with six wins from six, and their next game will be against unbeaten Chelsea in the Carabao Cup on, Wednesday, September 26.
