An own goal from Younes Kaboul and strikes from Suarez, Coutinho and Henderson saw Brendan Rodgers’ side run out winners 4-0 and moved the Reds two points ahead of Chelsea and four in front of Manchester City, who both dropped points on Saturday.
Man City were held 1-1 away to Arsenal, but the shock came at Selhurst Park where Chelsea lost 1-0 to relegation-threatened Crystal Palace.
The result prompted Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho to declare his side’s chances of winning the title as null and void.
“Now it’s impossible to win the title,” he said. “We depend too much on other results.”
Liverpool by contrast very much have their own destiny in their hands, with both City and Chelsea still to visit them.
Manuel Pellegrini’s City side however have played two games fewer and remain favourites in the eyes of many.
