With a decisive win over Toulouse, Liverpool leads Europa League Group E.


Liverpool easily defeated Toulouse 5-1 at Anfield to take a five-point lead in Group E of the Europa League after three games.

After Diogo Jota scored his eighth goal in seven games, he continued to fall in love with Europe’s second competition. Wataru Endo opened the score in Liverpool colors, and Darwin Nunez added another to put Jurgen Klopp’s team ahead before halftime. Thijs Dallinga equalized for the visitors.

Just after the hour, Nunez struck the post with an open goal, but Ryan Gravenberch scored on the rebound, and Mohamed Salah, a substitute, added a fifth goal in stoppage time to make Liverpool, who are currently three points behind the top of the Premier League, appear formidable on all fronts ahead of their demanding schedule.

After Saturday’s 2-0 Merseyside derby victory over Everton, Klopp had pledged to make “not too many” changes to his team.

Additionally, Klopp had expressed his desire to make sure Toulouse, who had suffered a 4-0 defeat in their lone prior visit to Anfield in 2007, did not have a good evening, and that all three of those players had a significant role in ensuring that they did not.

Although this was also a demonstration of Klopp’s squad depth, Jota scored the first goal, Alexander-Arnold assisted on the second, and Gravenberch, a constant in Liverpool’s midfield, created the third before scoring the fourth.

Jota scored the first goal after just nine minutes. The Portugal international was prodded forward by Joe Gomez, who turned on the edge of the center circle and raced toward goal, holding off two opponents and eluding Logan Costa before defeating Guillaume.

In order to play in Dallinga, Aron Donnum turned on the halfway line. Alexander-Arnold kept him onside, giving him room to run toward goal and shoot under Caoimhin Kelleher.

Liverpool quickly recovered composure. In the 28th minute, Gravenberch came dangerously close to scoring a spectacular goal. He controlled a long pass from Alexander-Arnold, broke into the box, and then, after appearing to run into traffic, twisted his way through to test the 18-year-old Restes with a low shot.

Shortly after, Endo’s opportunity presented itself when the international player from Japan ducked under his defender to steer Alexander-Arnold’s cross into the net’s corner.

Toulouse was jolted and soon trailed even more.

At the beginning of the first half, there was a scare when Kelleher mishandled a clearance, giving Gabriel Suazo a clear opportunity, but he fired straight at Alexander-Arnold on the line.

In the 65th minute, Liverpool’s fourth goal came about in an almost comical manner. Nunez, who had worked hard to round Restes, was found by Jota’s pass, but his shot rebounded off the post.

As Gravenberch picked up the pieces to score the goal his performance deserved, Nunez remained with his head in his hands.

In a rush of substitutions, Nunez was then replaced by Cody Gakpo, who made a welcome comeback from a knee injury. Salah also made a late appearance.
