Liverpool gained some measure of revenge for their Capital Cup penalty defeat to Manchester City by coasting to a 3-0 win over Manuel Pellegrini's men at Anfield.

Goals from Adam Lallana, James Milner and Roberto Firmino left City clinging onto their top-four place by their fingernails after another desperate league show.

Recalled goalkeeper Joe Hart was arguably at fault for Liverpool's first which Lallana drilled home in the 34th minute, and seven minutes later Milner added the second after a superb through-ball by Firmino.

The Brazilian made it three after 57 minutes when he took advantage of an inch-perfect pass from man-of-the-match Lallana to complete the one-sided win.

Jurgen Klopp had a one-word answer to describe the victory afterwards: "BOOM!"

Was the victory the perfect response to their League Cup final defeat on Sunday?
