Reigning European champions Liverpool have taken top spot in Group E on the back of their third successive win in the Champions League.

Liverpool saw off Genk FC of Belgium in their Matchday Four clash to secure the summit in the group.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp made several changes to his starting lineup with one eye on the big clash with champions Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.

The likes of Roberto Firmino, Andy Robertson and Sadio Mane were rested from the start.

The changes didn’t deter Liverpool as they took the lead inside 15 minutes through Dutch international Georginio Wijnaldum.

Genk are the bottom team in Group E but they didn’t look like that as they gave Liverpool a scare towards the end of the first half when Tanzanian international striker Mbwana Samatta scored the equaliser for the visitors.

Liverpool were forced to a 1-1 draw at the halftime interval but they were not level for long at the start of the second half after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored a second goal for the Reds.

The Big guns Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Andy Robertson were introduced into the game in the second half as Liverpool maintained that lead, taking the summit in Group E.
