Liverpool strode confidently to the top of the Premier League with an ominous display that suggests they can stay there.

The Reds destroyed poor Watford with a stunning attacking master-class, led by the Samba style of Braziliant Brazilians Philippe Coutinho and Rpberto Firmino.

Both men scored a goal each and had a hand in two more as Jurgen Klopp’s side produced football that was less heavy metal and more a symphony of style.

Coutinho, who is simply on fire at the moment, started it with a brilliant cross that Sadio Mane converted, then he cut inside himself to fire home a second.

Emre Can was gifted a third from Adam Lallana’s superb cross just before the break, and then Firmino tapped in after Lallana repeated the trick, before Mane got a second.

Watford were stunned, and could only reply late on when full back Daryl Janmaat produced a good finish, with the Hornets relieved at that stage they weren’t buried under an avalanche of goals.

But Liverpool had the last laugh as substitute Georginio Wijnaldum added a sixth late on.
