Curtis Jones scored an eight-minute hat-trick as Liverpool beat Sunderland 6-0 in Group F of the Premier League Cup to book their place in the knockout stage.

Jones netted three times late on after Liam Millar's opener and a second-half Joe Hardy double had put the Reds 3-0 up.

Liverpool can only be overtaken as group winners if Wigan Athletic win both of their remaining matches and make up a goal difference of five.
