Liverpool secured a comfortable 3-0 EFL Cup win at Derby thanks to goals from Ragnar Klavan, Philippe Coutinho and Divock Origi.
The Championship outfit started brightly but a defensive error saw Liverpool take a first-half lead as Klavan fired home from close range after Richard Keogh had failed to clear.
The Reds could have extended their lead before the break but they had to wait until after the restart to double their advantage.
Roberto Firmino played a one-two with Coutinho, who gave Liverpool a 2-0 lead and a foothold in the fourth round with a composed finish.
Coutinho turned provider for Liverpool's third as his pass set Origi on his way and the Belgian made no mistake as he rifled the ball beyond Jonathan Mitchell in the Rams' goal from a tight angle.
