Adam Lallana, James Milner superb as Liverpool thrash Hull City 5-1

A goal frenzy at Anfield included two calm penalty goals from James Milner as Jurgen Klopp's men downed Hull City 5-1.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp talks after his side's dominating 5-1 win against Hull City

Hull City were blown away, 5-1, by a rampant Liverpool who are a match for anybody when they are in this kind of mood. Jurgen Klopp's side showed composure and invention when they had the ball, and a relentless, almost maniacal at times, desire to win it back when they didn't. Being reduced to 10 men in the first half made it more difficult for Terry Phelan's side but in truth, a big home win looked on the cards from very early on.


Everybody played well and the goals are being spread...
