The status quo was unchanged at the top of the Premier League as Manchester City remained one point behind Liverpool courtesy of a 1-0 win against West Ham United.

It was typified by Mane's - and Liverpool's - second of the night: a brilliant backheel from 12 yards out which caught goalkeeper Ben Foster unawares.

"The boys showed how much they enjoy the game and the situation", a delighted Klopp told the BBC. We scored five goals and we deserved the win.

Klopp hailed Alexander-Arnold's "outstanding football game" after his hat-trick of assists and likewise, Premier League legend Shearer insisted that he, Lineker and Wright were thrilled by the pace and precision of the full-back's deliveries from wide areas and also the quality of his passing. It's a normal thing, if you're top of the table, it's pretty likely the contenders all win, that's how it is. Watford changed for us too. That is sometimes possible, sometimes not, but you have to be stable and the boys were always stable and really fluent offensively. Salah goes on a mazy run and just as Watford think the danger is over, having half-cleared, Alexander-Arnold picks out Mane - who is in plenty of space - with another smart cross.

"And add to that one of the guys you're supposed to be playing with then gets injured and spends the next however long portion of the season out, I'm talking about [Laurent] Koscielny, then you know you've gotta step up straight away from week one basically". It is of course not right.

"How Mo [Salah] played was unbelievable".

Not necessarily, Mane has scored against Manchester United and Arsenal so far this season, although that translates to two goals in eight appearances against fellow "Big Six" teams.

"We have had a midfield three of [Ander] Herrera, [Paul] Pogba and [Nemanja] Matic and they have played really well together". Great centre-forward play from Mane.

"We won 5-0 so you don't talk about them but they had their moments".

So it should come as no surprise that Deeney would struggle against the 27-year-old, who lifts the entire back-four to his astonishing level.
