Liverpool ease into EL quarters after thrashing Sparta Prague

Liverpool eased into the Europa League quarter-finals after thrashing Sparta Prague 6-1 at Anfield to win the tie 11-2 on aggregate.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were ruthless despite leading 5-1 after the first leg, scoring four goals in seven first-half minutes to put the last-16 tie to bed, before Sparta Prague pulled one back through Velko Birmancevic.

Bobby Clark netted his first senior goal for Liverpool right after Darwin Nunez’s seventh-minute opener. Mohamed Salah and Cody Gakpo then added two more in quick succession to make it 4-0 inside 15 minutes.

Dominik Szoboszlai’s deflected effort, three minutes into the second half, was quickly followed by Gakpo’s second as Liverpool punished a woeful Sparta Prague performance to claim their biggest win of the season.

Liverpool will learn their next opponents in Friday’s draw before heading to Old Trafford on Sunday to face Man Utd in the FA Cup quarter-finals, hoping to keep their quadruple dream alive.
