Liverpool beat Middlesbrough 3-0 at the Riverside Stadium last night and Michael Mongie is on hand to discuss a few talking points from the game.
After a few rather disappointing games in the last few weeks, Liverpool were able to return to winning ways with three goals and a clean sheet against Middlesbrough. Pre-match build-up was dominated by Loris Karius being dropped for Simon Mignolet and Joel Matip being excluded due to injury.
Despite a few detractors claiming that Liverpool looked weak, the Reds began the game very well and Adam Lallana scored his first goal of two with a powerful header from a smashing Nathaniel Clyne cross.
With 63.5% of the possession, Liverpool were in the driving seat for the whole game and never looked likely to concede other than a brief spell of pressure from the hosts early on.
After exactly one hour of play, Divock Origi scored his fifth goal in five consecutive games after some brilliant passing. Just eight minutes later, Lallana scored his second goal of the game with a late run into the box. Origi limped off late on but Jurgen Klopp has dispelled any injury worries.
