Rampant Liverpool smashed eight past Besiktas as they kept their Champions League campaign alive with a stunning Anfield display.

Yossi Benayoun led the way with a hat-trick after two-goal Peter Crouch had opened the scoring and substitute Ryan Babel struck twice.

Captain Steven Gerrard was also on target as Liverpool finally sparked into life after collecting just one point from their first three Group A games.
