The Reds headed into the game looking to try and regain their place at the top of the table after Manchester City moved into top spot thanks to their 4-0 win over Brighton earlier in the day.
Liverpool FC took the lead in the 33rd minute when Trent Alexander-Arnold’s looping cross was deflected into the top corner by Chris Wood.
The Merseyside outfit then went 2-0 up in the 37th minute after Ben Mee gifted the Reds possession, and Sadio Mane slotted home a fantastic low finish into the bottom corner.
Liverpool FC then made the points secure when Roberto Firmino hit home an unstoppable shot after excellent build-up play by the Reds.
England legend Lineker took to Twitter to joke about Mee’s defending after the Reds’ second goal, writing: “2nd goal for @LFC was all about Mee.”
And former Liverpool FC star Traore expressed his delight at seeing the Reds on their way towards three points, posting: “We stay top of the league. Come on @LFC #YNWA.”
The result maintained Liverpool FC’s place at the top of the Premier League table and extended their winning run in the English top flight to a record 13 games.
The Reds will return to Premier League action after the international break when they host Newcastle United at Anfield on Saturday 14 September.
