Ten minutes later, Mohamed Salah made it 2-0 with a great one-on-one finish against Jordan Pickford.

Demarai Gray pulled one back for the home side before half time to give them hope.

But that hope was extinguished by Salah in the 64th-minute. 

Then, with 10 minutes left, Diogo Jota finished it off in superb fashion.

He picked up the ball from Robertson, produced an incredible touch and smashed the ball past Pickford.

What a goal and what a performance from the away side.
