Adam Lallana was the first man on target after he picked up a pass from Phillip Coutinho. James Milner scored the second from the penalty spot after Elmohamady handled the ball inside the penalty box. The Hull defender was immediately sent-off.

Liverpool were playing beautiful, fast paced football and constantly troubling the Hull defenders. Sadio Mane netted the third goal to seal the fate of the goal.

The teams went into half time with Liverpool already confirming 3 points for them.

But things did not stop there as Phillip Coutinho netted his team's fourth goal with a wonder strike from 25 yards away after David Meyler had pulled one back for the visiting team in the 51st minute.

But as it seemed 4-1 scoreline was not enough for German manager Jurgen Klopp who introduced Daniel Sturridge to bolster the squad.

The English striker was brought down inside the penalty box in the 70th minute and Liverpool were awarded yet another penalty.

James Milner once again rose upto the occassion and scored his second and team's 5th goal.
