    Liverpool produced a superb second-half showing to come from behind and beat Luton Town 4-1 at Anfield to extend their lead at the top of the table.

    Goals from Virgil van Dijk, Cody Gakpo and Luis Diaz in a 15-minute period, along with a late strike from Harvey Elliott cancelled out Chiedozie Ogbene's first-half header as the Reds move four points clear of second-place Manchester City.

    How the match unfolded

    Jurgen Klopp made five changes, with four of them due to injuries as Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez, Mohamed Salah and Curtis Jones were replace by Ryan Gravenberch, Gakpo and Elliott while Jarell Quansah and Joe Gomez came in for Ibrahima Konate and Andrew Robertson. Luton kept the same team from their defeat to Manchester United on Sunday.

    Diaz had a good chance early on after he was picked out by Elliott, who became the fourth-youngest player to make 100 appearances for Liverpool, but the Colombian's curling effort went beyond the left post.

    Despite a strong start from Liverpool, it was Luton who took the lead after 12 minutes as Ogbene headed in from close range after Tahith Chong's strike was parried by Caoimhin Kelleher and the rebound fell kindly to Ogbene.

    Liverpool started the second half on the front foot with Diaz having two shots blocked. And the pressure eventually told as Van Dijk brought the hosts level with a header past Thomas Kaminski from Alexis Mac Allister's corner in the 56th minute.

    Mac Allister was the provider again when his cross was flicked in by Gakpo. There were just 125 seconds between the two Liverpool goals.

    Van Dijk went close to scoring a second goal from another corner, but this time Kaminski was able to save his header.

    Liverpool then gave themselves breathing space after Diaz showed great composure to dribble past Teden Mengi before firing past Kaminski. The goal meant Liverpool are the first team in Europe's top five leagues to have five players score 10 or more goals as Diaz joined Salah, Jota, Nunez and Gakpo in double digits.

    Klopp then handed late minutes to teenagers Jayden Danns and James McConnell.

    And Elliott wrapped up the victory in the 90th minute as he smashed a loose ball inside the box into the top-left corner, leaving Kaminski no chance.

    Liverpool have now recovered 22 points from losing positions in the Premier League this season, more than any other side, and their joint-most in a single campaign in the competition since 2008/09 as they secured a third-straight league win.

    Luton missed the chance to move out of the relegation zone as they now remain in 18th on 20 points, behind Everton on goal difference.
