Two goals apiece from inform strikers Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah saw Liverpool stroll past bottom of the table Huddersfield and return to the top of the Premiership.

Liverpool scored after just 14 seconds as Salah played in Naby Keita who guided the ball past Jonas Lössl onto the post and in.

A second goal soon followed as Liverpool pressed forward in numbers and a fine header from Mane made it 2-0 to Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Just as half-time was approaching Liverpool added another goal as Trent Alexander-Arnold whipped a delicious through ball to Salah whose beautiful lob went over the head of Lössl and trickled into the net.

In the second half, Huddersfield struggled to match Liverpool’s intensity as Daniel Sturridge flicked the ball into the net from an Alexander-Arnold cross, only to be denied by the linesman for offside.

Liverpool accelerated away from Huddersfield as Jordan Henderson’s delightful ball into the box was powered into the bottom corner by the head of Mane.

Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain made a welcome return to first team action after spending a year on the side-lines much to the delight of the Anfield crowd.

Mane almost scored his hat-trick as he headed onto the post after good work from Xherdan Shaqiri.

Egyptian Salah scored his 69th league goal in 100 appearances for Liverpool making it 5-0 and ensured a comfortable victory for Jurgen Klopp’s title chasers.

Liverpool are now unbeaten in 39 matches at Anfield and now have a club record 91 points and counting with two games still to play.

Hi my name is James Spencer and I am a huge Liverpool fan since I was a small boy!

Steven Gerrard was my favourite player growing up and I watched all the fantastic finals that Liverpool won under Houllier and Benitez! I also liked Jerzy Dudek, Sami Hyypia, Luis Garcia and Xabi Alonso.

I am currently studying Multimedia Journalism at Salford in Manchester, in my 2nd year with my career ambition to be a full-time football or tennis journalist, or possibly both!
