Mo Salah scored twice as Liverpool showed no mercy on former manager Rafa Benitez to leave the Spaniard clinging to his job as Everton boss after losing the Merseyside derby 4-1.

The Reds had won just one of their previous nine visits to Goodison Park, but were in complete control from the first whistle against Benitez's Toffees, who have now taken just two points from the last 24 on offer in the English Premier League.

Stunning strikes from Jordan Henderson and Salah inside 20 minutes gave Everton a mountain to climb.

"It was for sure the best performance at Goodison since I have been at Liverpool," said Reds boss Jurgen Klopp. "We had some good games here but never as good or convincing as tonight.

"Tonight we showed we made a big step in our development. This is now our benchmark we have to reach when we play these type of games."
