Red-hot Liverpool turned it on against Maty Ryan’s Brighton while Aaron Mooy’s Huddersfield lost to Everton overnight in the English Premier League.
The Reds won 5-1 at the Amex against Ryan’s Seagulls in Brighton’s first defeat at home since the opening day of the EPL season.
Roberto Firmino (2) Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho were on target and there was a late own-goal from Lewis Dunk to confirm a bad day for Brighton.
Meanwhile, Aaron Mooy’s Huddersfield lost 2-0 at Everton in Sam Allardyce’s first game in charge of the Toffees.
Mooy had a chance in the first half but his curling free-kick came to nothing for the visitors.
Second-half goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin ensured Allardyce's rein began with a victory.
