The victory meant four Premier League sides topped their Euro groups for the first time since the 2006-07 season. And Philippe Coutinho’s hat-trick helped take Reds’ group goal tally to 23 — beating United’s record of 20 for a Prem side set in their Treble-winning season of 1998-99.
Manchester City lost to Shakhtar Donetsk, while Tottenham beat Apollon Limassol, but both Prem sides could relax ahead of their games – already confirmed as group-toppers in F and H respectively.
Manchester United were already through, but sealed top spot with a 2-1 Group A win over CSKA Moscow at Old Trafford on Tuesday. Chelsea also knew they would be in the knockout stages, but a 1-1 draw hosting Atletico Madrid meant they slipped below Roma to finish second in Group C.
