Trent Alexander-Arnold put the Reds in charge within just seven minutes of the game, finding the net from a free-kick 20 yards from goal.
Mohamed Salah added a second goal to Liverpool's tally after half-time, transforming from the penalty spot after Luis Diaz had been brought down - and the scoreline could have been far greater, but for a fine execution from visiting goalkeeper Allan McGregor.
The result leaves Jurgen Klopp's side in second place on six points in the group at the halfway stage, three behind leaders SSC Napoli, who defeated AFC Ajax in Amsterdam in the evening's other fixture.
