Liverpool are joint-top at the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur, following their 3-0 win over Leicester City on Sunday.
Jurgen Klopp’s men went into the game with a number of defensive injuries and Mohammed Salah missing with a positive COVID-19 diagnosis.
But it did not stop the defending champions from going into the break with a two-goal advantage.
Jonny Evans put the ball past his own goalkeeper, before Diogo Jota headed in for 2-0.
Leicester had chances to pull one back, but it was Roberto Firmino that sealed an emphatic victory for the Reds.
It takes them to 20 points, the same with Spurs who have a bigger goals difference.
Liverpool are away to Brighton next, while Jose Mourinho’s men clash with Chelsea.
