The Reds got off to a brilliant start when James Milner setup Adam Lallana with the opener on 34 minutes. Milner doubled the home sides lead just five minutes later to give Liverpool a two goal cushion at half-time.
Firminho – who assisted Milner’s goal – wrapped up all three points on 57 minutes and as luck would have it Milner provided the assist.
Can made the highest number of tackles (7) and the most interceptions in midfield (4) he also happened to make more successful dribbles going forwards than any other player (2).
