Liverpool battered Crystal Palace to send an ominous message of their title intent at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

The Reds took the lead after just the third minute when Takumi Minamino fired home after being found by Sadio Mane, but Palace looked to hit back and had a couple of decent chances to level.

However, Liverpool took control towards the end of the first period and struck through Mane and Roberto Firmino, before the visitors ran riot in the second half.

Jordan Henderson blasted home from the edge of the box to make it 4-0, before Mohamed Salah came off the bench to tee up Firmino for the fifth before grabbing two himself.
