Liverpool became the first English club to score four first-half goals in an away Champions League game against Maribor on Tuesday night.

Jurgen Klopp’s side had won just one of their last eight games in all competitions prior to their trip to Slovenia but took an early lead through Roberto Firmino.

Philippe Coutinho doubled the visitors’ lead on 13 minutes before Mohamed Salah scored a brace to give the Reds a 4-0 cushion at the break.

As well as essentially securing a valuable three points in their tight Champions League group, the impressive display ensured Liverpool became the only English club to score four goals in a Champions League game away from home.
