The Reds struck on three further occasions at Anfield on Sunday, and only Real Madrid has scored more league goals in Europe's major leagues this season
Brendan Rodgers' men have now hit an impressive 93 goals in 34 Premier League games this season. Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge - both of whom failed to register versus City - are the two top scorers in the division with 49 between them.
|EUROPE'S TOP LEAGUE SCORERS
Barcelona is the third highest scorer with 92 goals from 33 games and had been the most prolific side going into this weekend, prior to its shock 1-0 loss to Granada.
Manchester City is fourth on the continent with 86 strikes in 32 encounters. The Citizens had been Europe's best scorers during most of the first half of the campaign, but their potency has decreased in 2014.
European champion Bayern Munich is fifth with 82 goals in 30 games. The Bavarians have also slowed down since clinching the Bundesliga in record time and have failed to score in their last two matches.
French giant Paris Saint-Germain is Europe's sixth highest scorer, having struck 74 times in 33 games. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani have contributed to 40 of these.
La Liga leader Atletico Madrid has built its success this season on a mean backline, but has still scored 72 league goals.
Eredivisie outfit Feyenoord, helped by Graziano Pelle, has 70 goals to its name - although it probably won't be enough to prevent Ajax from winning a fourth successive Dutch title.
The top 10 is completed by Italy's best two teams this season - Juventus and Roma. The Bianconeri, who are five points clear at the top of Serie A with a game in hand, have scored 69 goals to the capital outfit's 68.
