One slight cause for concern will be yet more defensive injury problems as Fabinho was missing with a knock and Joel Matip was forced off at half time.
The three points moves the Reds back into the top four with a huge doubleheader on the horizon.
This is what Jurgen Klopp had to say in his post-match press conference, with a full transcript available from liverpoolfc.com.
On The Performance
''I am delighted, it was a great game, super intense, we scored goals at the right moments. All good.''
On Return To Form
''That's us, massive fight and football. We were quick and counter-attacking. Lots of good things I wanted to see. We were so often in and around the box; the counter-press was really important.''
''Offensively I thought we coped really well with their formation. Counter press really good.''
''You can imagine we think about everything. I am not picky but we need to find the right player. We have some. Not a lot.''
''He can do much better than tonight but it was an important step. He came late, he was ill, injured then playing in a defensive position. We played him higher up the pitch.''
