Liverpool vs. Huddersfield Town Live Stream, TV Channel: Watch Premier League

Liverpool jump back atop the Premier League standings - two points over Manchester City, who play Burnley on Sunday.

Liverpool knows that any slip-up in its final three league games could giftwrap City its second title, so maintaining focus, even as a Champions League semifinal first leg vs. Barcelona looms next week, is vital for Jurgen Klopp's side. Certainly, it is hard to imagine Manchester United's Paul Pogba making a similar trip without finding himself deluged by criticism and suggestions of poor preparation and misguided priorities.

- Mohamed Salah has become only the third Liverpool player to score 20 or more Premier League goals in consecutive seasons for the club, after Robbie Fowler (1994-95 and 1995-96) and Luis Suarez (2012-13 and 2013-14).

Naby Keita scored Liverpool's quickest ever Premier League goal after just 16 seconds before Sadio Mane nodded in Andy Robertson's pinpoint cross half-way through the first 45 minutes. The fact that Salah went on to score twice himself felt like a footnote to his performance, which belied any hint of jet lag following his trip to NY, which was approved by Klopp due to the manager's insistence that the player is an influential figure in the battle against racism and Islamophobia. "That's what we try and that's what the boys did, that's what Mo Salah did again tonight, and with the points tally we have", Klopp said. "In the world at the moment, it is very important that you have people like Mo".

In the meantime, Liverpool's focus will switch to Wednesday's trip to Camp Nou, but with their star forwards in such fine form, and their defence imperious, their dreams of a double may yet become a reality.

- No defender in Premier League history has assisted more goals in a single season in the competition than Liverpool's Andrew Robertson (11).

Salah set a new goal scoring record for Liverpool in the huge win. Liverpool fans were also hoping for Manchester United to raise their game against City last Wednesday.
