The reigning European and world champions took the lead just after the half-hour mark in controversial circumstances.
Divock Origi was brought down in the box by Issa Diop and, after a long VAR check, a penalty kick was awarded. Mohamed Salah stepped up and made no mistake from the spot to fire Liverpool into the lead.
The win was then assured in the second-half when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain rounded off a fine move, slotting past Lukasz Fabianski after a sensational pass from Salah.
The 2-0 win means Liverpool have a 19 point lead over Manchester City in second. Here are our player ratings.
