Liverpool edge closer to CL last 16

Liverpool moved one point clear at the top of their Champions League group following a 3-0 victory over Maribor at Anfield.  Maribor were a far cry from the side that shipped seven against Liverpool a fortnight ago as they frustrated the hosts in a goalless first half.

However, Mohamed Salah's flick (49) broke the deadlock, and while Liverpool's penalty woes continued when James Milner saw his penalty saved, Emre Can put the game beyond doubt (64) with a delightful finish.Daniel Sturridge came off the bench to slam home a third (90), and Liverpool now know that victory over Sevilla - who beat Spartak Moscow 2-1 to move second - on November 21 will book their place in the knockout stages with a game to spare.
