Roberto Firmino scored twice as Liverpool hit Leicester City 4-0 in the final Premier League tie on Boxing Day.
Having barely won the reverse fixture by a lone goal at Anfield, many had nursed fears that Liverpool’s unbeaten run may just end at the King Power stadium.
However, the Reds showed why they are European and World champions as they simply took Leicester City to the cleaners.
Firmino set the tone for the night with the opening goal in the 31st minute.
While it was expected that Leicester City will mount a fightback in the second half, it was then they capitulated.
The Foxes conceded three goals in eight minutes with James Milner scoring from the penalty spot before Firmino and Trent Alexander Arnold added one each.

Before this Boxing Day knock out, the Foxes were unbeaten in front of their own fans this campaign.
