Liverpool record Champions League firsts with seven-goal mauling of Maribor

Yet nothing can be done until January at the earliest and the first priority will be for Liverpool need to start winning matches this week because they need three points away at Maribor in the Champions League tonight if they are going to stay on course to top their group.

There are no notable absentees from the travelling party with the same 18 players who made up Jurgen Klopp's match day squad for Saturday's stalemate against Manchester United included along with Marko Grujic, Danny Ward and Andy Robertson.

The German has been designated Champions League goalkeeper by Klopp but his performances so far have done little to vindicate the manager's faith.

This time, Firmino was the provider, feeding an incisive pass through a static Maribor defence and the Egyptian coolly slotted past a woefully exposed Handanovic.

Salah would then add his second and Liverpool's fourth of the night five minutes before the interval to give the visitors a commanding lead. The pair met the ball at seemingly the same time to put it in.

"Because they've been under a bit of pressure recently".

Nine minutes later Firmino's compatriot Philippe Coutinho converted James Milner's smart pullback to double the lead before Salah finished smartly at the near post as Liverpool ran riot in the opening 19 minutes.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was introduced into the game by the hour, replacing Salah, who wasn't afforded the chance to complete his hat-trick.

The second half had a similar feel to the first, with Liverpool dominant and dictating play.

Oxlade-Chamberlain opened up his Liverpool account with a simple stroked finish from 10 yards out after strolling onto fellow substitute Daniel Sturridge's well-weighted through ball to increase Maribor's misery.

The final result was 7-0 after Alexander Trent-Arnold took a shot from distance that found it's way to the back of the net as the Reds claimed their biggest away victory in European football and their first of the current campaign.
