Pundit Gary Lineker took to Twitter to salute Liverpool’s performance today, suggesting the manner of the 4-0 win hints at a genuine Premier League title race.
The victory puts us at the top of the table for the time being, although Manchester City can overtake us if they beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge later this evening.
Mo Salah was in crazy form, notching a hat-trick that puts him on ten goals for the Premier League season and to the top of the Golden Boot standings, level with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but with more assists.

There’s been times this season when we’ve won without playing especially well, but today was a genuinely superb performance from 1-11.
Alisson was a rock, as were our centre-backs – and James Milner and Andy Robertson bossed the flanks.
Fabinho is going to be world-class, Naby Keita is getting better and better and Gini Wijnaldum ticks us over.
With Salah in the kind of form he showed today, we can win every game at a canter!
We just hope Lineker is right.
