Fresh from watching at Old Trafford, Liverpool right back Trent Alexander-Arnold served up a tremendous cross for the Reds’ opening goal. Mane’s headed finish was his 13th goal of the season.
Mane made it 2-0 with a splended bit of invention after a poor first touch, giving Alexander-Arnold his second assist of the night with a chopped back heel effort that fooled a charging Ben Foster.
Origi and Van Dijk then scored, with Van Dijk then rounding out the scoring by powering an Andrew Robertson cross over the line.
