Liverpool vs Spartak Moscow, Shakthar Donetsk vs Manchester City: Champions League - LIVE

Spartak Moscow players 'receive sex ban'

He was the longest servant on the pitch tonight in the line-up, it was clear that he was the captain.

Fernando Llorente opened the scoring with his first goal for Spurs since joining from Swansea in the summer.

"That's why you want to go through and try and be a protagonist in this tournament".

Against Spartak Philippe Coutinho's first hat-trick for the club took his tally for the season to nine, while Sadio Mane is up to seven after a second-half double with Roberto Firmino on 12 after his goal, although he is still six behind top scorer Mohamed Salah, who rounded off the rout with a late effort.

"We come to the little shadow tonight that Alberto Moreno needed to get substituted", said Klopp.

Klopp said: "Before the game, we knew if we won we would be top of the group, so that's not the biggest surprise".

Emre Can was shown a yellow card for his tackle on Ze Luis moments later, leading with a high foot despite seeming to win the ball.

"It was the worst match in the European Cup history of Spartak - a black day".

Can was a dominant figure on the night, but it was Liverpool's 'Fab Four' of Coutinho, Salah, Mane and Firmino who stole the headlines yet again. "They can always score and it's nice to play in such a team of course", he added.

Serie A giants Napoli also failed to make it to the knockout stages after suffering a 2-1 defeat at Feyenoord on Wednesday, as Shakhtar Donetsk beat Manchester City 2-1 to finish second place in Group G.

That's not to mention the classy gesture of handing over the armband when Milner entered the fray. Spartak Moscow is a really good side, I know you won't think so now but they are difficult to play against.

Handed the captain's armband four months after asking to leave the club, Coutinho led Liverpool's dismantling of Spartak with two goals in the opening 15 minutes before his completing his first hat trick for the Reds in the 50th.

Earlier this season, Spartak fans were found guilty of racially abusing another Liverpool youth player. Klopp has consistently rebuffed suggestions of a mental fragility within his squad and on this occasion his team illustrated their ability to manage their advantage through to the final whistle.
