According to the club, Liverpool's fastest goal ever was Jack Balmer's score against city rivals Everton in February 1938 - 10 seconds into that edition of the Merseyside derby.

"It was brilliant, really good performance, everything we needed", Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said.

It was the same against Huddersfield, with Salah creating the opening goal for Naby Keita after just 16 seconds by feeding his teammate after a defensive mistake by Jon Gorenc Stankovic.

Liverpool moved back above Manchester City in the Premier League table as they thrashed Huddersfield Town on Friday.

Andy Robertson collected his first of two assists when he cued up Mane for a 23rd minute marker.

Another Mane header, this time from a Jordan Henderson cross, saw Liverpool go 4-0 up on 66 minutes.

However he did re-charge the car's battery at a Tesla supercharger about an hour before the fire. Fortunately, there were no casualties, according to the official Weibo account of the carmaker.

He took his tally for the club to 69 - a record for a Liverpool player in his first century of games.

Levante, meanwhile, have called up 23 players for the trip to Camp Nou.

Huddersfield were never likely to get a result on the road, and while they did show flashes of promise going forward at times, Jan Siewert's bold gameplan of playing out from the back against Liverpool's pressing game was quickly exposed.

- The Reds have won 10 consecutive matches in all competitions, their best winning run since May 2006 when they won 11 on the bounce.

Salah made it 3-0 before halftime, nabbing his 68th Liverpool goal in his 100th appearance when he lobbed Jonas Lossl off a long pass from Trent Alexander-Arnold. The former Chelsea and Roma forward has not hit the heights of last season, when he scored 32 goals in 36 Premier League games, but nobody else has registered more league goals than him this campaign.
