Liverpool stretched its lead at the top of the Premier League to six points with a 4-0 win against Newcastle United at Anfield.

Dejan Lovren’s thunderous strike in the 11th minute gave the Reds an advantage during a tight opening half with Rafael Benitez’s side.

And Mohamed Salah doubled the score almost immediately after the restart by winning and converting a penalty kick, before Xherdan Shaqiri and substitute Fabinho added late gloss.

Jürgen Klopp’s side therefore have reached the halfway stage of the season without defeat and remain the pacesetters after 19 Premier League games.
