Phillipe Coutinho scored a hat-trick on Wednesday night as Liverpool destroyed Spartak Moscow 7-0 to cruise to the Champions League second round as group winners.
Coutinho scored from the penalty spot and Liverpool proceeded to dismantle the Russian champions in emphatic fashion.
Two more Coutinho goals, one with a heavy deflection, as well as a brace from Sadio Mane and others from Salah and Roberto Firmino, made it a comfortable win and sent a warning to all potential opponents in next Monday’s draw.
Tottenham also won 3-0 at the night against Apoel Nicosia, with both Fernando Llorente and George-Kevin N’Koudou getting their first goals for the club, while Heung-Min Son got the other goal.
All five English clubs qualified for the second round despite city losing for the first time this season 2-1 to Shakhtar Donetsk.
The draw for the Champions League second round will take place on Monday at Uefa’s headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.
