Liverpool eased to an emphatic 4-1 win away to Genk on Wednesday night, making it back-to-back Champions League victories in Group E.

The Reds arrived in Belgium in a surprisingly shaky run of form on the road in European group games, losing their last four in a row.

Jurgen Klopp made five changes to the side that drew 1-1 at Man United on Sunday, with an exciting midfield of Fabinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita starting.

It took only two minutes for Liverpool to open the scoring, as Oxlade-Chamberlain fired home from outside the penalty area—his first goal since April 2018.

Sadio Mane almost put Liverpool 2-0 up after an unbelievable Roberto Firmino pass, but he was denied by Gaetan Coucke.

He wasn’t to be denied, however, finishing beautifully late in the day to add a third goal for the Reds.

Liverpool’s No. 10 was then on hand to tee up Mohamed Salah, who made it 4-0 in clinical fashion before celebrating with his team-mate.

There was still time for Stephen Odey to score a consolation, but it did little to dampen the spirits of the travelling Reds supporters.
