The previous record was held by Bafétimbi Gomis who scored a hat-trick in eight minutes for Lyon against Dinamo Zagreb in 2011. Mike Newell still holds the record for quickest ever ‘perfect’ hat-trick, scoring with his left foot, right foot and head.
Roberto Firmino scored twice, while Darwin Nunez and Harvey Elliott also struck in a morale-boosting win for Jurgen Klopp’s men as they moved to within a point of qualifying for the last-16 stage.
Liverpool went into the game following a gruelling 2-3 loss against Arsenal in the English Premier League.
