Huddersfield Town v Liverpool

Emre Can, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah score in 3-0 win at the John Smith's Stadium

Liverpool moved five points clear of Tottenham Hotspur in fourth place with a 3-0 win at Huddersfield Town.

Emre Can opened the scoring with a low shot that deflected off Philip Billing on its way in.

Roberto Firmino doubled the lead in first-half stoppage-time from the narrowest of angles after Sadio Mane's pass.

Mohamed Salah converted a 78th-minute penalty after Billing fouled Can.

After Laurent Depoitre had been denied by Loris Karius early on, Huddersfield offered little before a late rally.

Town's fourth successive defeat leaves them one point above the relegation zone.
