Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp and players celebrate after crushing Spartak Moscow 7-0.

Jurgen Klopp's men need to avoid defeat against Spartak, who held the Reds to a 1-1 draw earlier in the competition, in order to ensure their place in the last-16 of the Europe's premier club competition, while Massimo Carerra's side must win at Anfield as they strive to keep their Champions League quest alive.

Philippe Coutinho scored his first hat-trick for the Reds.

Liverpool went into the break with a 3-0 lead and Sadio Mane hit the hosts' fourth two minutes after the restart, with his sublime volley the pick of Liverpool's seven goals.

The Brazilian worldwide was the subject of a number of big-money bids from Barcelona in the summer, all of which were rebuffed by the Merseyside club.

Spartak arrived in the northwest of England still in with a chance of qualifying. "The approach is not the thing, it is what we do with it", he said. Just minutes into the game Georgi Dzhikiya pulled down Mohamed Salah as Coutinho drifted a ball into the area. Firmino latched onto the loose ball and curled home a shot with the outside of his right foot.

The start went from good to great for the home side, as Coutinho doubled the score with his second of the match in the 15th minute.

Coutinho's summer was dominated by his desire to move to the La Liga giants, so much so that he tried to force it with a late transfer request that was ultimately denied by Liverpool. "I could not be less interested in the other teams to be honest but I think the reason [for five English teams in the draw] is quality", Klopp said. They've got forward players that are better than Manchester United, than Arsenal.
