Michael Owen praises Liverpool performance against Maribor: It was handsome to see

18 October, 2017, 00:39 | Author: Carla Brady

Liverpool face Tottenham Hotspur this Sunday in the Premier League.

For now, though, they can bask in the warm glow of a stunning victory on the road.

"We scored wonderful goals and played wonderful football".

The Egypt winger said: "It was a great game, we did good in that game. It was a very mature performance".

The home side defended poorly in a first half where they shipped four goals, Liverpool essentially on easy street from the moment Roberto Firmino put them ahead on four minutes.

Salah was able to make progress into a unsafe area and his cross was turned in by Firmino.




Liverpool were running riot and Coutinho doubled their advantage in the 13th minute. James Milner is in midfield, along with Georginio Wijnaldum and Emre Can.

Maribor were in complete disarray and Salah notched Liverpool's fourth from virtually on the goalline after Alberto Moreno's cross unhinged the hapless hosts in the 39th minute.

Klopp intends to keep changes to a minimum but could give Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain his first Champions League start for the club.

Halftime did little to halt their momentum and Firmino added a well-deserved second finishing from Coutinho's fierce cross with a deft header in the 54th minute.

Capping a night when everything when right for Klopp, Oxlade-Chamberlain, on as a substitute, grabbed his first Liverpool goal since his August move from Arsenal. Sturridge dispossessed Suler who was dawdling on the ball, before playing in his fellow countryman Oxlade-Chamberlain who sent the ball to Handanovic's left to the delight of the former Arsenal man and his manager.

Klopp was all smiles on the touchline and there was still time for teenage defender Alexander-Arnold to net in stoppage-time with a deflected long-range effort.
