FIVE things we learnt about Liverpool this afternoon

Liverpool hit five in what was an inspired performance at Anfield this afternoon.

The Anfield faithful must be wondering what could have been this season had Kenny Dalglish been appointed caretaker earlier in the year and you do sense that a Europa League finish would have been the very minimum they could have expected. I don’t think many will be surprised if the Reds end up nicking a top five finish this season, given the way their rivals are falling apart above them. Maxi was the hero today with his first hat-trick in English football, although it would have been very hard to identify a bad performance from anyone this afternoon.

So how do Liverpool fans feel about the performance today and what are the five things we learnt about the Reds this afternoon?
