Liverpool are simply on fire right now.
Despite making five changes for the Merseyside Derby, Jurgen Klopp still marshalled his table-toppers to an emphatic 5-2 victory over a beleaguered Everton side.
Divock Origi, who seems to resemble Lionel Messi in the biggest games, opened the scoring for Liverpool after a sublime through-ball from Sadio Mane.
Xherdan Shaqiri then marked his own return to the starting XI with a composed finish past Jordan Pickford, before Michael Keane pulled one back to prevent a rare Liverpool clean sheet.
Chaos then reigned on the remainder of the first half as Origi bagged another, Mane collected a well-earned goal of his own and Richarlison popped up in stoppage time to make it 4-2.

Liverpool 5-2 Everton
It seemed inevitable that the action would peter out eventually and after Adrian finally made the first save of the game, Georginio Wijnaldum found the net late on to finalise a 5-2 victory.
As a result, Liverpool maintained their eight-point lead at the Premier League summit, matching the strongest start to a top-flight season in English football history.
Their record of 14 victories and just one draw interestingly reflects the start made by Manchester City when they romped to a record points tally of 100 during the 2017/18 season.
Club record unbeaten run
But perhaps most impressively of all, it moves Liverpool clear as having the third longest unbeaten run in Premier League history at 32 games, dating all the way back to January 3.
And victory over Everton marked a particular moment of club history, because 32 games without defeat is the longest top-flight unbeaten run in Liverpool's 127-year existence.
Considering this is the second most successful English club in history we're talking about, that's no small statement.
Ever since that defeat at Manchester City in the New Year, Liverpool have won an astonishing 27 Premier League matches and drawn just five, of which four came prior to April.
GIVEMESPORT's Kobe Tong says
Accuse me of tempting fate, but it would take a monumental collapse for Liverpool to miss out on their first Premier League trophy.
Even with defensive issues that have brought just two clean sheets, you can't ignore the fact Klopp is producing identical form to the strongest English champions we've ever seen.
Their desire and belief to grind out results like they did at Crystal Palace and Aston Villa shows this squad of players is fighting tooth and nail for the trophy that has evaded them for so long.
I'm inclined to think they'll finish just short, but the fact we're even considering it proves Klopp has already produced something truly special.News Now - Sport News
