Jurgen Klopp's side had several chances to extend their lead but were pegged back four minutes before the break, when Ally Mbwana Samatta met a Bryan Heynen corner with a superbly-angled near-post header.

Napoli drew at home to Red Bull Salzburg to hand the advantage in the group to Liverpool. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane were all on target for the reverse fixture, helping their side to a 4-1 victory at Cristal Arena.

Both Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain missed a large chunk of action last season, and they are expected to play a big role for Liverpool this season. A goal for either team before half-time would swing the game.

But credit to Genk, who didn't lie down, even after taking their most risky player, Junya Ito, off and replacing him with Dieumerci Ndongala.

"That keeps the game pretty exciting, and left Genk alive".

"It could have been a lot more comfortable but they made it hard".

"We got a little bit of trouble but not really". If we had scored two or three in the first half, nobody would have thought that couldn't have happened. "We are in a good position".

Liverpool have conceded in eight consecutive matches in all competitions, last going longer without a clean sheet between September and October 2014, under Brendan Rodgers (a run of nine).
